The United States Consul General, Mr. F. John Bray commended the former President for his support for education in a Nigeria Science, Technology, engineering  and mathematics education, remarking that such was admirable.
According to him, “the nearly 200 students and their teachers are here to learn, innovate, think,and have fun. I can feel how excited you are to get back to your robots so I promise to not talk too long,” Bray said.
He assured that “through the RoboRAVE program, Nigerian children will be inspired to learn more about the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and mathematics) and importance of creation, innovation, and product development.”
