Tuesday 7th February 2023, a popular pro-Sanwo Olu group in Lagos, Sanwo-Olu Ambassadors presented cash awards of N7000 each to 40 prospective JAMB/UMTE indigent candidates across Lagos State.
According to the release made available to the press, the group’s leader and director general, Amb (Hajia) Tai Elemesho-Okesanjo, stated that the idea of supporting indigent students with cash to purchase UTME forms is a result of her passion and strong belief in the education of the youth, and in tandem with the group’s principal THEMES agenda that she initiated and sourced for the sponsor of the award in Chief Komolafe, who gracefully released cash for the award.
While presenting the awards to the 22 beneficiaries who attended the presentation event, the DG urged the awardees to ensure that they make the sponsor and the group proud by ensuring that they use the cash for the procurement of their forms only.
