Speaking at the presentation of the scholarship awards recently, the Chairman District 9110 Education and Welfare Funds Projects and a past District Rotary Governor, Mr. Adeniji Raji,  urged Nigerians to support indigent and brilliant students in the community as part of efforts to assist their parents who do not have the financial wherewithal to send them to school.

He also urged that they should assist notable non-governmental organisations  especially Rotary International, in its efforts to promote growth and national development. In a statement signed and issued to THISDAY by the Public Relations Consultant to Rotary International, Tola Noibi, noted the organisation’s desire to continue to support students who are in need of such opportunities.
