Mrs. Olubunmi Adelugba, Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, has urged students in her Emure Constituency to take their studies seriously and work hard in order to achieve success in life.

Adelugba gave the charge in a media statement issued by her Special Adviser on Media, Mr Odunayo Ogunmola, and made it available to newsmen on Wednesday in Ado-Ekiti.

According to the statement, the speaker spoke on the sidelines of a free coaching scheme she organised for students in the constituency taking this year’s Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The students were busy using the laptop provided by the coaching centre to improve their performance in the UTME, which is a Computer Based Test (CBT).

“Apart from sponsoring the free coaching for the beneficiaries, the speaker also purchased the UTME form for 40 indigent students in the constituency, to enable them to take part in the examination and pursue admissions to tertiary institutions and courses of their choice.

The speaker said she took the steps to help the students fulfil their dreams and life ambition and contribute to their human capital development, stressing the importance of education in making these to be possible.

She described education as a bedrock for the development of any country which should not be toyed with, hence all stakeholders must ensure that the younger generation, especially the indigent ones, are not denied the opportunity to be educated.

Adelugba urged the benefiting students of her schemes to use the opportunities to score high marks that would enable them to gain admission to the institutions and disciplines of their choice.

“I decided to purchase JAMB forms and sponsor their coaching to contribute my own quota to their self-development and to assist them in fulfilling their dreams.

“Without education, I myself wouldn’t have gotten to where I am now and if we can support these young ones, they can become greater than us in the nearest future. With education, you can get to the peak anywhere in the world.”

The Speaker urged the facilitators and tutors of the exercise to put in their best in the interest of the students for them to reach their academic destinations and achieve more feats in life.

She promised to continue to contribute her quota to the socio-economic development of the constituency, whether in office or out of office, especially in the areas of poverty alleviation, and attraction of projects, among others.

The benefiting students hailed the speaker for shouldering the burden of paying for their JAMB forms and also putting up a coaching scheme for them ahead of the examinations.

They prayed to God to bless the speaker and lift her to greater heights for remembering them in their time of need.
