Ekiti distributes JAMB forms worth N17m to 2,500 indigent youths

The Ekiti State government has distributed free JAMB forms worth N17.2 million to 2,500 indigent and vulnerable but qualified out-of-school youths across the 16  local government areas of the state.

Erelu Bisi Fayemi, who flagged off the distribution of the forms to the  beneficiaries,  said the present administration  is committed  to extending the dividend of democracy to the  youths.

According to her, the  purchase of the forms for the vulnerable youths  would also give  them the ample opportunity they would have missed  to secure  a better future with their peers as the leaders of tomorrow.

She reiterated that the government will leave no stone unturned in preparing the future leaders of Ekiti state with the requisite qualifications  to enable them to improve on the solid foundation that has been laid in the state.

Erelu Fayemi,  urged the beneficiaries to reciprocate  the gesture by being  studious and shun any unwholesome behaviours  that could jeopardise  the attainment of academic greatness.
