As part of efforts to assist indigent Students in his constituency, Speaker of Osun State House of Assembly, Prince Adewale Egbedun is set to give out free Jamb forms to about 1500 students from his constituency who are willing to participate in the 2024, Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). 

Prince Egbedun who disclosed this in Oyan, Odo-Otin Local Government during an event, said the outstanding candidates in the examination will also be rewarded.

The speaker noted that this would further encourage the students to put in their best in the examination and future academic pursuits.

While explaining that he attached great importance to education as it is the only way we can empower the promising young ones, Prince Egbedun assured that the empowerment would cut across all groups; the elderly, women, youths, artisans and students in the various communities making up the constituency.

He also used the occasion to present a car gift to one of the People Democratic Party, PDP leaders in his constituency, Alfa Raimi Adeleke.

Prince Egbedun commended Alfa Raimi for his leadership and uncompromising roles in the party and stressed that the car gift was to support his activities in the local government and beyond.

“This education support programme is to assist parents and students in the constituency. I understand that many brilliant students have dropped out or are on the brink of dropping out of school because of initial financial challenges.”

“Such students need encouragement and I assure them that the best student in the exam will receive support for his or her University Education.”

“The forms will be distributed to wards, a hundred each for the fifteen wards. I have instructed my team to also arrange for a Preparatory Tutorial Class for them in the Local Government,” he submitted.
