Nigerian Minister of State, Budget and National Planning, Prince Clement Ikanade Agba, has been honoured by members of St John’s College Old Boys Association Fugar, who heaped praises him on him.
Agba, who is one of the association’s members and an Alumni of the school, was praised for the “great works and contributions” towards the development of the entire Afenmai Land, a town in Edo State, Southern Nigeria.
Since his assumption of Office less than two years ago, he was said to have facilitated the construction of roads in different parts of Afenmai Land and Edo State at large.
Amongst these projects are the ongoing road projects in Iviukhua, Iviebua, Iviegbopui, Okpekpe, Agenebode and other Egori Communities in the state.
A member of the alumni association, Mr Jolly Obozuwa, who was full of praises for Agba, described him as a True Saint and a Worthy Son of Etsako Land, who has distinguished himself out of the other ministers who emerged from Edo State “but had no meaningful achievement during their time in office.”
He also added that the achievements recorded so far are ground-breaking and a testimony to the love he has for his people.
Mr Obozuwa noted that it is a clear affirmation that when the right people are in position of authority, the dividend of good governance is possible and can be accessed by all.
He prayed that God continue to grant him sound health and wisdom to do more for his Community, Friends and the Old Boys Association.
Agba is one of the Graduating 1979 Set of the College, who went on to obtain his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics at Ambrose Alli University Ekpoma.
He was a two-time commissioner under the administration of Comrade Adams Aliu Oshiomhole.
