JAMB to commence 2019/2020 UTME registration in January - Board

The Chairman, Badagry Local Government, Mr Olusegun Onilude, on Monday gave free Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) forms to 200 indigent candidates in the area.

Onilude said, during the presentation of the forms, that the current administration was committed to making education accessible to all.

According to him, “I was once a teacher and I know the impact that education can have in transforming lives.

“We have reached out to over 2,000 students since the inception of this administration.

“The aim is to remove the burden of financing the JAMB forms from the candidates’ parents and ignite the flames of hope and possibilities in the hearts of our youths,” he said.

The chairman reminded the beneficiaries that the gesture was to promote education and assist resourceful youths to pursue their goal in life.

“My advice to you all is to ensure proper use of this opportunity by ensuring that you all pass your examinations.

“The current administration will continue to do more for you if you make good use of this golden opportunity by performing well in the JAMB examination,” he said.

Onilude assured them that education would continue to be his top priority.

Mrs Sewede Pot-Balogun, the Supervisor for Education in the council, said that the free forms were to give succour to the parents due to the current economic challenges in the country.

Pot-Balogun said the beneficiaries were selected through a series of interviews for those with their National Identification Number (NIN).

She said that the council would organise coaching classes for the candidates to excel in the examination.
