Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu has stated that education is the best tool to change the mindsets of the youths which dissuades them from crime and in the long run brings insecurity to the barest minimum in the land.
The governor made this assertion while speaking at the Grand finale of schools quiz competition organized by a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), Ray Nkemdirim Foundation in Umuahia.
Ikpeazu maintained that education plays a pivotal role in shaping the youths positively for the future.
Ikpeazu, represented by the Secretary to State Government (SSG), Chris Ezem said dedication to education and hard work were the only route to success.
While urging students to be studious and spend lesser times on unnecessary things, Ikpeazu challenged parents to always work hard in training their children and not depend only on teachers.
He commended the organizers of the schools quiz competition and urged them to make it an annual event.
