The member representing Etsako Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr. Anamero Dekeri, yesterday in Benin City, capital of Edo State, announced free registration of 10,000 Indigent students for next year’s Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations (SSCE).
He said the beneficiaries cut across the three senatorial districts of the state on equal basis, adding that the gesture was to remove the financial constraints which oftentimes had hindered and truncated the dreams of many deserving students from pursuing and attaining quality education to an acceptable level.
Dekeri said: “It is imperative to bring to your notice the final modalities that have been put in place for the equitable sharing of the 10,000 WAEC forms that I have earlier proposed to pay for indigent students in Edo State who are billed to sit for the examinations next year.
“This initiative is aimed at ensuring equitable access to education for the children of Edo State.
This is a promise of my commitment to providing opportunities for every child to thrive and actualise their individual careers as education remains the pivot for the development and prosperity of any society and nation.”
Dekeri who is also a governorship aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) come next year, noted that the gesture was a device to bridge the gap and alleviate the burden placed on economically disadvantaged families.
