In a bid to provide educational support to its indigenes, the Chairman of Ikorodu Local Government Area, Hon. Wasiu Adesina, has distributed 200 free GCE forms to students.
Beneficiaries of the initiative obtained their postcards and examination timetables at the council secretariat during the event.
It will be recalled that two weeks ago Hon. Adesina organised a free training for over 100 youths on digital skills in hia he partnership with ‘Speed Up Lagos’.
Engaging the students before the presentation, the council boss urged them to be focused and prepare for their exams by reading their books so they can come out with flying colours.
He said, “The presentation of GCE forms has been a yearly routine to assist parents and a means to provide educational support to the youths of Ikorodu.
“You should not relent in your life pursuit, try as much as feasible to acquire extra skills to chip into bridging the unemployment gap in our community and state at large.
“My administration is making an effort to meet the needs of individuals, groups, and communities to enhance everyone’s well-being.
“Every beneficiary should seize this opportunity and ensure they get good results because they also stand to benefit from other educational chances this administration would be putting forth such as; free jamb forms, scholarship schemes through tertiary institutions, and more” the council boss said.
Expressing his zeal to further boost the educational sector, Adesina affirmed that the almost completed block of five classrooms in Salvation Army Primary School Ikorodu will be commissioned in a week.
