Oyo lawmaker gives free GCE forms

A member representing the Ibadan South East/North East Federal Constituency, Adedapo Lam Adesina, has distributed 40 General Certificate Examination’s (GCE) forms to the less-privileged pupils in his constituency.

He said the forms would enable the pupils to participate in this year’s November/December General Certificate Examination GCE.

The gesture, which costs N9,000 each, came under the lawmaker’s Omo-Oloore Education Development Scheme.

Adesina, at the presentation in his constituency office in Ile-Titun, Oke-Odo, yesterday said it was done in fulfillment of part of the promises he made to the constituents during the 2015 elections.

The lawmaker said: “I made a lot of pledges during the electioneering campaign in the last election, and I am here to fulfill it today. I promised to take this constituency to a level that will be of envy to others.

“I believe that the distribution of these forms will encourage and assist some of the students, who have lost hope of writing the examination this year. Our children’s education is very essential because the children are our own tomorrow and they will be the ones to stand by us when we can no longer struggle again.”
