He said every child deserves to be assisted in order to develop his/her potential, adding that the establishment of FCBESCOLA was to make space available in a conducive and accessible environment in order to support and help the youngsters make their dreams come true.
“I can give my all to see that these young children actualised their God-given potential. Aside God, family, nothing in this world can be compared to what I enjoy in this academy. From what I have discovered, every child is a genius or have some elements of greatness in him or her. Therefore, none should be ignored. Government can not do it all, that is why we are there to contribute our own quota,” Oghomienor stated.
