An education organisation, Goodmus Learning Centre, Africa, has paid the tuition fees of forty-one students drawn from different secondary schools in Enugu State.
According to a statement, the Chief Executive Officer of the center, Mr Adekunle Badmus, while presenting the cash awards to the students at God Provides Secondary School, Enugu, said he was inspired by the need to reach out to the underprivileged members of society.
Badmus who is also the convener of Quality but Affordable Education in Africa said the centre was interested in helping Nigerian students secure admission to tertiary institutions in Turkey where the government had subsidised education.
He said: “Today, we are giving students tuition scholarship courtesy of Goodmus Learning Centre and partners. What we are doing is a concept that looks at ways of getting back to those who cannot pay tuition fees for their wards.
“About 41 students benefitted from our initiative; what we did was to give back to the underprivileged, to help those who want to study abroad.
The South-East Coordinator of the Centre, Mrs Chinenye Uwabunkeonye, said the students were selected through an examination conducted in 2017 but due to paucity of funds, they were not able to receive the cash award as planned.
The Proprietor, God Provides Nursery, Primary and Secondary School, Mr Celestine Aninkwo also expressed happiness at the Centre’s gesture, stating that it would help parents in paying the current term’s school fees.
