The NCPC boss explained that education is not only the bed rock of a nation but a tool that brings about nation building and development if it is well utilized and given its right place. In his words, “if education is respected and given its right place most of the crisis we face as a nation will be avoided”.
He urged Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of unity and togetherness and not to promote division and ethnicity in the country.
According to him, “we must think nationalism and build Plateau State and the nation at large”.
Rev. Pam stressed the need for the Youths to work hard and be focused in their educational pursuit in order to build capacity with the aim of National Development and becoming the future leaders of Nigeria.
His words, “one of you can lead this nation because an indigene of Plateau has led Nigeria in the past”.

According to him, “we commend the President for appointing an indigenous son of Plateau for this position.”
