Fulfilling its promise to Ogun citizens during the last Lsabi Day, the Egba National Association in the U.S and Canada recently offered a N50,000 scholarship to 17 indigent students of Ogun origin studying in higher institutions in Nigeria.
The Chairman of the association, Bola Ameen, said the gesture was to sustain the legacy of good education associated with the Egba.
The Alake of Egbaland, HRH Adedotun Gbadebo, who presented the cheques to the beneficiaries on behalf of the association, urged them to make the best use of the fund to further their education.
“You should know that these people (members of the association) have saved the money to give you a new life. Therefore, make sure you utilise the money well,” he said.
Appealing to the parents of the beneficiaries to ensure their children spend the money on their education, His Majesty the money must not be spent on things that wouldn’t value to their lives.”
