"AB, education is the key to success. And as a youth leader, I have resolved to commit my little resources into turning around the educational fortunes of the youth and region at large. It is my desire to uplift the educational standards in every district in the Savannah Region by augmenting the efforts of teachers in improving learning outcomes. The Self-Sponsored Extra Classes initiative I have started in Bole District is here to stay. I will soon announce dates for the commencement of the initiative in all the other districts within Savannah Region".
