NGO awards scholarships to 50 indigent students of FCT

A Non-Governmental Organisation, Jojo Classic Foundation, has offered scholarships to no fewer than fifty indigent students of Ushafa community in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Chief Hon. Dr. Joshua Dangiwa, the President and CEO of the Foundation, while presenting the awards to the students on Monday in Abuja, said that the essence of the scholarship was to ease their  educational pursuits and urged the students to take their education very seriously.

Dr Dangiwa charged the students to eschew all forms of social vices, stressing that such social misdemeanors could cost them irreversible setbacks in life that could even culminate in their early death.

The philanthropist specifically noted that social vices, such as drug addiction, cultism and exam malpractice, among others, are very dangerous and inimical to educational success in today’s society, and urged the beneficiaries to shun them.

Dangiwa expressed satisfaction with the support given to him by the Media in all his philanthropic activities, and urged the media to continue to cooperate with the NGO, adding that the media remained the “bridge-builders of the society.”

Responding, the Village Head of  Ushafa, Alhaji Muhammed Baba, thanked the philanthropist for his kind gesture extended to the people of his community by the Foundation.

G4 Media International quoted Dangiwa as saying that the gesture would be a continuous one which would cut across all the six Area Councils of the FCT.
