APC Councilor awards Scholarships to Eleven(11) Pupils

The All Peoples Congress Party (APC) Councilor for Ward 333 in the Western Rural District, Councilor Ayo Olu-Jones on Sunday 5th September 2010 awarded a year’s scholarship each to eleven (11) pupils within the Goderich Community that excelled in this year’s National Primary Schools Examinations (NPSE) in their respective schools.  


In an auspicious ceremony held at the village Community Centre Councilor Olu-Jones hastened to say that the donation was not politically motivated but a mere humanitarian gesture to under privileged children in his ward.  He said the package of a fiscal cash of Le100, 000 (One hundred thousand Leones) including relevant learning materials was part of his gesture to promote education in that part of the city.  He also promised to extend similar gesture to pupils that will score best grades in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results and West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASCE) expected to be released this month.  He challenged the pupils in that community that if they are competitive in their academic works the scholarships will be sustainable.


In his keynote address, the Chairman of the Western Rural District Council Alhassan Cole said the best gift a man can give to his child is education, while using the ceremony to call on parents and guardians to ensure that they send their children and wards to school, with special attention to the girl child. He admonished the beneficiaries to retain the scholarships by putting more interest in their studies.


On behalf of parents and teachers of the community, Mr. Sorie Sesay thanked the Councilor for what he described as his thoughtful support to the children of the Goderich Community. He assured the elected councilor that as teachers they would do all in their capacity to ensure that they equip the children with all the required knowledge to become self-reliant in the future. 


He also called on other well meaning Sierra Leoneans and NGOs amongst others to follow the good steps of Councilor Olu-Jones.
