  • Lagos lawmaker gives GCE forms to 130 students
  • A Lagos lawmaker, Mr Abiodun Tobun, on
    Monday distributed N2 million worth of General
    Certificate Education (GCE) forms to no fewer
    than 130 indigent students of Epe Constituency
    I.
    Tobun of the APC, who represents the
    constituency in the Lagos State House of
    Assembly, told newsmen at the official
    distribution of the WAEC GCE registration PIN to
    beneficiaries that investment in education was
    necessary to transform Nigeria.
    The 2017/2018 WAEC GCE Registration scratch
    card/PIN goes for N13,950.
    The lawmaker promised that the number of
    beneficiaries would increase to 200 by next
    week.
    Tobun, the Chairman, House Committee on
    Works and Infrastructure said that the gesture
    was in line with Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode’s
    programme on education for youths.
    He said that he had recently distributed JAMB
    forms to some candidates in the constituency
    but that it was later discovered that some of the
    candidates did not have O’ level results.
    “I have distributed about 120 JAMB forms to
    students in this area and some of the passed the
    exam very well.
    “But we later discovered that some of them did
    not have complete O’ level results and some
    students also approached me, and said that they
    needed GCE forms.
    “So, I felt that this was a way to let the youth
    grow. With this, they would be able to help
    their parents when they eventually graduate.
    “The knowledge that we acquired is what is
    helping us today. So we will continue to do
    more to impact on the youth.
    “Today, we distributed about 130 forms, but I
    am sure that by next week the number will
    increase to 200,” Tobun said.
    The lawmaker said that his vision was to make
    the youth to be more productive so that they
    would move the community to the next level.
    He explained that the beneficiaries were chosen
    on merit and he did not know anyone of them
    personally.
    “If I give you food items or money, I might not
    be as happy as I am with what is happening
    here today,” he said.
    Earlier in his welcome address, Mr Olowo
    Ogunniyi, the Sole Administrator of Epe Local
    Government, expressed satisfaction with the
    initiative of the lawmaker, describing him a true
    representative of the people.
    Ogunniyi said that donating forms to the youth
    in the community free of charge was a step that
    was worthy of emulation by other leaders in the
    area.
    Some of the beneficiaries who spoke with
    newsmen during the event thanked the lawmaker
    for the gesture, describing it as a relief for their
    parents.
    One of them, Master Habeeb Olayinka, said that
    he had already completed his OND programme
    but needed a complete O’ level result to proceed
    further.
    Also speaking, Miss Oluwadamilola Oyekanbi,
    who had just graduated from secondary school,
    said that she needed a credit pass in Physics to
    proceed in her studies.
    Oyekanbi, who noted that she sat for the 2017
    Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination
    (UTME) with awaiting results, eulogised Tobun
    for the support.
    “This gesture will help me fulfil my dream of
    gaining admission to study nursing in the
    university.”
