Lawmaker foot students’ NECO fees in Gaya constituency
The beneficiaries, who were selected across the three councils of the constituency, got scholarships and payments of SSCE catered for by the lawmaker.
At the flag-off ceremony of the scholarship programme, Gaya assured of his continued readiness and willingness to partner with any organisation with a convincing idea about improving the standard of education in his constituency.
The lawmaker expressed concerns over the plight of hundreds of final year secondary school students in the constituency, who are willing to further their education but are not financially buoyant to afford the examination fee.
Gaya, who disclosed that he was motivated to bear the responsibility because of his commitment toward educational development, pledged to sustain the gesture to ensure equal opportunity for children of the less privileged to seek higher education.
The lawmaker said he would not hesitate to continue to complement the state government efforts for free and compulsory education in the state.
Gaya, however, urged the beneficiaries to rededicate effort and remain focus on pursuing their educational career to become useful to themselves and their family, as well as the society.
According to him, more spiritual and wealthy individuals should emulate the gesture to reduce the level of out of school children out in the state.
