“This programme will serve as a lasting tribute to his legacy, with the aim of providing educational opportunities and support to underprivileged children and indigent learners in public primary, secondary, technical colleges, and tertiary institutions, as well as special needs learners within Ikenne, Remo North, and Sagamu Local Government Areas.

 

“ The Gbemiga Abiodun Memorial Education Programme will provide scholarship awards designed for learners within the age bracket of 6–25, and selection will be determined by the GA Education programme Coordinating TEAM and the State Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology using the cumulative promotion examination results obtainable from the OGSERA platform and other parameters, while the beneficiaries for tertiary institutions will be recommended by their respective institutions.

 

“Today, we gave out support to 550 indigenous students in the first instance, and we will grow to 1000 students in 12 months, a number that must be kept as a minimum, meaning that some graduates and others are admitted. 50,000 yearly for primary school children; 100,000 yearly for secondary; and 250,000 yearly for tertiary school students, so long as they remain in school until the completion of their education in that category.” Governor Dapo added.
