No fewer than 65 indigent students of Ogun State are to benefit from a N6 million worth of scholarship aimed at rescuing brilliant students whose academic careers are being threatened by financial challenges.
According to the donor, Dr. Abayomi Jiboku, an educationist and Proprietor of TAIDOB College, the Dr. Abayomi Jiboku Foundation would award 54 university students of the 65 selected students N100,000 each, eight polytechnic students would receive N80,000, while three students from colleges of education would each get N60,000.
“Being a beneficiary of scholarship during my school days, I am compelled to extend financial support to less-privileged individuals in the society. The decision to set up the foundation is borne out of a genuine mind to help indigent Nigerian youths that are academically forthcoming.”
He, however, condemned the inconsistency of government educational policies and advocated for the removal of education from the legislative list.
