While addressing the students at his hometown Kofa, Bebeji, Hon. Jibrin described his decision to pay the fees for the students as his contribution to the educational sector which will have multi dimensional positive impact on different sectors including security of our dear country.
Jibrin who currently serves as the Executive Director, Business Development, Federal Housing Authority said that even though the state government has played a commendable part of sponsorship for the students, “we need to consolidate on that as a modest way of supporting the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari and our dear state under Governor Umar Ganduje.
“I want to restore hope on you and ensure you continue to have faith in the path of education you have chosen. Many of you that cannot sponsor themselves to write NECO or NBAIS have it today.
“We don’t want to see you roaming the streets, it is a collective responsibility of every well meaning Nigerians to support government in making the lives of the people better”. He also appealed to the beneficiaries to utilize the opportunity towards making their future brighter
The event was attended by students union leaders, community leaders, party leaders and stakeholders accross board.
