The success story of the ₦4.6 million project underscored the importance of collective efforts. Mustapha Sherif highlighted collaboration among the entire staff of Ariwajoye High School, local leaders, and representatives from Kishi Progressive Union and other associations as instrumental in achieving the project’s goals. The occasion served as a testament to the impact achievable through unity and shared purpose.
