A Non Government Organization (NGO), under the aegis of Iwoland Development Coalition (IDC) has awarded scholarship to some average vulnerable students in Iwo Federal Constituency of Osun State.

The scholarship scheme was initiated by the coalition to promote educational desire of most less privilege students in the constituency and arrest the seemly attended massive drop out occasion by the state government`s failure to foot the West African Examination Council (WAEC) fees of secondary students in the state.

The coordinator of IDC, Mr. Adisa Kabiru Kulukulu described the selection criteria as objective, charged beneficial students to be proud asset of the coalition by ensuring they come out in fly colour.

According to the coordinator, two students each were selected from the 3 Local Governments of Iwo, Ayedire and Ola-Oluwa that constitute Iwo Federal Constituency. Abioye Hammed and Adesiyan Miracle are the two less privileged beneficiaries from Iwo, Iwo Grammar School and Baptist High School respectively.

Others are Abdul-Rosheed Zakariyahu and Amusan Monsuru are double orphan from Luther King`s College, Ileogbo and Kuta Community High School, Kuta respectively while Ibrahim Morufat Ajose, a double orphan is from Ogbaagba Community Grammar School in Ola-Oluwa Local Government and Abioye Jamiu from Ajagunlase High School, Ajagunlase in the same Local Authority.

In his remark, Abdul-Rosheed Zaakariyahu condemned the state government`s illogical computation of qualified candidates for the state mock for mistakenly recording zero scores for him. The school record showed empty mark in front of my name. He however expressed gratitude to IDC for such academic succor, affirming that it came at a time he has resigned to be drop out.

A beneficiary from Kuta Community High School, Amusan Monsuru, vowed to burn night candle to come out in fly colour and be a recommendable asset to the coalition in the nearest future.

According to him, all hope is almost lost because I am a double orphan living with my aged grandmother. I fend for myself to make living. I have forgone sitting for WAEC but man proposes but God disposes. This is a rare advantage that must be converted positively.

Mr. Adisa expressed disappointment on the uncompassionate disposition of most affluent to vulnerable pupils who are likely to be better ambassadors. He therefore urged the well-to-do in the society to give back by initiating scholarship to breed promising hopes for the country.

“The stakeholders must come together to rescue the decay in education sector. It must not be left to government alone. I am thinking of education summit to arrest the ugly situation but before that, I will urge the rich to initiate a working eternal scholarship to discover and promote first class ambassadors of Iwoland,” he said.

It would be recalled that the NGO has organised school tour and awarded scholarship of free computer training to some outstanding students. The coalition promise to prioritise education in its programmes.
