A non-governmental organization, Unubiko Foundation, has paid the 2020 West African Examination Council (WAEC) fees for eligible students of the Atan-Abam community, Arochukwu Local Government Area, Abia State.

The owner of the foundation, Mr. James Chijioke Ume, a businessman and chairman of Channelkoos Media Consult, who hails from the community, came to the aid of the students who could not afford the WAEC fee, by registering and paying all the monetary requirements for all eligible students who would be writing the May/June WAEC exams.

The philanthropic activities of Unubiko Foundation have also been noticed across the state and beyond. The chairman of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Abuja chapter, Emmanuel Ogbeche, while commending the gesture of Ume, said: “For long I have known him to be a silent giver, generously too, through the Unubiko Foundation.”

The foundation has also been involved in the provision of other social amenities in the community.
