Serving Corps Member In Kogi Pays School Fees Of 30 Students

A serving corps member in Kogi State, Miss Oyebimpe Olofin, has paid the school fees of 30 students and distributed over 180 books, including writing materials to some schools in Lokoja.




The move was part of the activities lined up to mark this year’s Children Day celebration by Olofin under Omoloye Foundation. Olofin, while presenting the cash gifts, school uniforms and writing materials to the underprivileged students, noted that every child is a star with adequate investment.

She said, “It is important that as a good citizen of Nigeria, we should help make the child and their parent’s dream come true by ensuring that they are in school and not on the street.”

“While interacting with these children recently, I realised that some of them want to go to school. Every child is a star in their own way; it all depends on what you invest in them. If you give them something good, they will give something good in return.”
Olofin noted that the gifts would encourage the students to see education as the best way to achieve success in life, while calling on relevant stakeholders to help in the campaign to move children off the streets during school hours.

Meanwhile, the Principal of Muslim Community Secondary School, Lokoja, Yakubu Danladi, while lauding the initiative, said some of problems in the society could be traced to poor investment in education by government.

“Most of the children who are supposed to be in school are not in school because of many factors. Sincerely, if these issues are not nipped in the board, things will get out of hand,” he said.
