Yishawu, who lectured the candidates for over an hour, told them to carefully choose their course of study and take the opportunity made available to them with all seriousness.

According to him, “I am happy that you came around to pick the forms. Your time is your time and you cannot work with somebody’s else time. I will advise you to study hard. Some parents that are not educated spend more to attain education for their children because they know the value of education.”

He therefore appealed to parents to guide their children in choosing course of study in higher institution and not to force them to study a particular course.

In a related development, Yishawu posited that distribution of the forms is part of his commitment and support to his constituents.
