Nasarawa State House of Assembly member, Alhaji Mohammed Alkali, has given out 200 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) forms 200 indigenes and paid the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) registration fee for 100 students in his constituency, Lafia.
The lawmaker revealed this on Monday while giving out and registering the candidates at the Nasarawa State Bureau for Information and Communication Technology ( ICT) in Lafia.
Alkali, the chairman of the House Committee on Local Government noted that his act, under the Alkali-Talba Foundation which cuts across the six electoral wards of the Lafia constituency; Assako, Adogi, Keffi Wambai, Shabu/Kwandere, Ashige, and Arikiya wards is a way to take the burden of registering for the examinations off the parents of the less-privileged students.
“This gesture is borne out of my desire to assist the indigent students towards improving their standard of education in my constituency, the state and the country at large, as the importance of education to human and societal development could not be overemphasized,” he explained.
He encouraged the beneficiaries to prepare for the examinations so as to come out victorious and participate in the free ICT training at the Bureau for ICT for their benefit and for the development of the Lafia Constituency.
Shahu Ibrahim, the Director General, Nasarawa State Bureau for Information and Communication Technology lauded the statesman for the act, encouraging the beneficiaries to make the best out of the opportunity.
Christopher Ajegena and Patience Ogboshi who represented the beneficiaries also appreciated Alhaji Alkali.
