The honorable councilor representing Ward Seven (07) in Ido local government areas of Oyo state, Hon. Adedeji Adebowale has supported four indigent students from Community High School, Elenusonso, Ibadan, with free West African Examination Council (WAEC) forms.
According to him, giving back to society has always been his watchword right from Childbirth, stressing that, as a duly elected honorable Councillor representing Ward 07 in the Ido council area, the effort of the local council legislature must be felt in a bid to bring smiles to society.
The Ward 07 Councilor supports four students for a start with ten thousand Naira each to obtain WAEC forms. He encouraged the students to be more serious and fall in love with their studies, saying that education is the hub of human development.
Beneficiaries are; Miss Okunola Grace, Master Ibrahim Lateef, Miss Adekunle Oluwayemisi, and Master Azeez Victor respectively.
Adedeji Adebowale maintained that the gesture will enable the beneficiaries to undertake the examination and reduce the burden of WAEC fees on their parents.
He said; “Most important to me is education. It’s the key that opens every door to success. An educated person will be developing people and eventually a nation. Without education, society can’t move forward, it can’t prosper, it can’t grow.”
“This is part of my commitment to improve the standard of education and to reduce the burden of WAEC fees on parents.
“The importance of education to societal development cannot be overemphasized, hence the need for the gesture” he stated.
Hon. Adebowale pledged that the action will be a continuous exercise where students will be picked randomly within the ward and be supported financially to write their final exams.
The Parents of the four beneficiaries commended the kind gesture of the honorable councilor for the unexpected support during this crucial period of inflation, and scarcity of commodities, and prayed for the councilor’s breakthrough in all his endeavors in life and thereafter.
