Mike Sonko replied with the post below;
POINT OF CORRECTION ON MY GRADUATION FB POST BY GOVERNOR DR. EVANS KIDERO.
First and foremost I take this opportunity to thank my friend and Governor Dr. Evans Kidero for the best wishes ahead of my graduation. The graduation will be held on 18/7/2015 Saturday and not tomorrow Friday, the 17/7/2015 as reported by my Governor on his FB page.
Secondly I would like to thank my family, friends, all the great people of Nairobi whom I serve and Kenyans in general for their continued support and prayers on this long academic journey which will end in my graduation on Saturday with a degree in Business administration.
Thirdly I want to tell my constituents and Kenyans in general that I’m not graduating coz I want to become the Nairobi Governor. I’m not graduating coz I want to please voters in Nairobi to vote for me. This is not the time to ask for elective seats or votes. This is the time to focus on service delivery to the people. You did your part when you voted for us as your leaders. I went back to the campus coz I wanted to have skills in leadership. I will also be pursuing a degree in political science in the near future.
Fourthly I’m urging the youth who are still studying to be serious with your education. Don’t emulate me. I was the most notorious student in school coz I made my first millions when I was in form 3, I thought money was everything but now look, I was forced to go back to the campus almost 15 years after completing my form 4. Imagine if I was serious in pursuing with my studies by that time. Do you think I would be where Iam today? I’m sure by now Kenyans would be referring to me as professor or Doctor Sonko.
My fifth point to you students again bear in mind that EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO YOUR FUTURE. EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO YOUR SUCCESS some of you your parents sacrifice a lot including selling your family properties to ensure you get education so kindly don’t disappoint them. You are the future leaders of this country. Your the future Sonkos and Sonkoreses. You are the future Governors, Senators, Mps, Doctors, Pilots, Engineers etc. so please work hard for your better tomorrow your parents have high hopes in you.
Lastly to you my Governor again Dr. Evans Kidero thanks for the advance wishes. I’m looking forward to work with you for the betterment of Nairobians and a better Nairobi provided we get rid of the main factor of CORRUPTION which is hindering DEVELOPMENT in our great county of NAIROBI CITY. Goodnight everyone.
