The Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin has presented cash to another set of 100 students drawn from Ibarapa East State Constituency.
The event held at the Eruwa Town Hall in the constituency was the second bursary award programme by the speaker for 2021.
Each of the 100 students who are currently attending various higher institutions of learning received N10,000.
The Speaker said the bursary award was part of his Education Support Initiative aimed at boosting the morale of youth in his Constituency, especially in terms of their educational pursuits.
“Education is no doubt the bedrock of socio-economic development of a nation. It is critical and pivotal hence all hands must be on deck to encourage our students to give their study all the attention it deserves.
“I am happy that we are supporting another one hundred students of Ibarapa East descent with cash.
“We were here in June this year to flag off the Bursary programme and now the second set is benefitting. We promised to make it a quarterly affair and to God be the glory.
“This is another testimony that we are fulfilling our election campaign promises.
“I want to assure that the last set of 100 students for the last quarter of the year will be attended to in December this year.
“May God continue to support our party, the PDP and its lofty agenda for the people of Oyo State,” Ogundoyin said.
He urged the students to shun all vices capable of bringing the name of their families and the communities into disrepute.
In his remarks, the Chairman, Water Corporation of Oyo State, Dr Adebayo Adepoju urged the students to strive to reach the pinnacle of their educational careers.
The Speaker was in Lanlate a fortnight ago where he presented deep freezers and generators to constituents in the area as a way of boosting their socio-economic activities.
Another fourteen people had earlier received motorcycles while 30 people got N25,000 each to support their businesses.
