We strategized for peace without collecting a dime from anyone. But today, I am seeing the value for every effort I made and every money I spent then.

Speaking about his leadership prowess, the Boys Brigade Boss said, “a good leader makes sacrifices for his followers. No good leader should impose himself on the people.

“When something good comes to the table, a good leader allows the people first.

“In 2011, I was honoured with an award of excellence by the National Union of Ijaw Students Worldwide for my positive contributions towards education. I have registered a lot of our children for JAMB, WAEC, NECO and I have helped a lot of them secure admission into various tertiary institutions. Not only that, I also check on the students to know what they are doing and how they are performing in school. Many students have been rusticated from schools and they are still collecting school fees from their parents, but their parents won’t know. So, I took it upon myself to be a parent to them”, he added.
