The Governor urged them to learn the virtue of integrity because “the world desperately searches for men and women who can be trusted”.
He recalled his days as a secondary school student at the old Ihie High School which has today become the campus of the CLIFFORD UNIVERSITY and told the youths that once they can build up the virtue of hard-work, honesty and integrity, they can achieve their loftiest dreams in life.
The Governor commended the leadership of the SDA Church for organizing the conference and challenged the youths to make good use of the lessons and skills they will learn from the event, adding that the lessons he learnt as a young Adventist have guided him over the years.
The highlight of the day’s event was the superlative parade mounted by members of the Missionary Volunteers (MV), a voluntary organization in the SDA Church. Governor Ikpeazu reviewed the parade.
