Mr Sesan Daini, Chairman, Igbogbo-Baiyeku Local Government Developmental Area, Lagos State, says the council will give 100 indigent students N10, 000 each as a bursary award. Daini made this known during a visit of executive members of the National Association of Igbogbo-Baiyeku students, at the council secretariat on Wednesday in Lagos. According to him, his administration is committed to the development of education.

He said many students had benefited from one assistance or the other from the council since the inception of his administration in 2017.

“My belief is that the best empowerment to the youth is to support their education. One of the focal points of my manifesto during my campaign was to develop and support our youths especially those in higher institutions of learning. We have been doing it and shall continue to do it despite the challenges faced by our administration. In the past, we had given full scholarships to indigenous students to encourage those committed to building their future in education. As I have promised, I will ensure the council commences disbursement of N10, 000 to 100 indigent students as bursary award before the expiration of this administration. I am always happy to see that youths in this community have the desire to further their education”.
