The Chairman of Igando-Ikotun Local Government Development Area, Hon. Morenike Adesina Williams, has distributed free Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) forms to 200 students and out-of-school youths across the seven wards of the council.
The Head Media and Publicity Secretary of the council, Comrade A.S Oseni, made this known in a statement on Thursday.
According to the statement, the council boss said that her administration would continue to prioritise the education of Igando-Ikotun youths for national development.
She disclosed that the beneficiaries, who are qualified but indigent youths, were chosen having obtained a minimum of six credit passes in either West African Examinations Council (WAEC) or National Examinations Council of Nigeria (NECO) examination at one sitting.
The council boss explained that the step marked the continuation of the programme in the second term administration.
Williams assured that her administration would leave no stone unturned in preparing the future leaders of Igando-Ikotun with requisite qualification to enable them improve on the solid foundation that is being laid by the present government.
“I urge the beneficiaries to reciprocate the gesture by being committed to your studies and desist from act capable of truncating your future,” she said.
