ODF Foundation Buys JAMB Forms for 5,200 Candidates in Ekiti

The founder of Opeyemi David Falegan Foundation ODF, Hon. Opeyemi David Falegan, has distributed 5,200 free Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, JAMB, forms to candidates from all local government areas across Ekiti.

Falegan described the gesture as his education support programme to support parents and students in the state, saying the rationale behind this exercise is to encourage Ekiti youth and many brilliant students from poor homes or backgrounds who may wish to further their education to a more higher level, but couldn’t do so because their parents couldn’t afford the fees.

Five thousand two hundred students were given and registered for this free jamb exercise by all local governments.

Falegan’s empowerment program has cost him millions of Naira, adding that the rationale was to lessen the burden of most of Ekiti’s parents who can’t afford to pay for the form. 

Falegan added that the Nigerian education system suffers from inadequate infrastructure, with many schools lacking basic facilities such as classrooms, desks, and chairs. 

One of the parents, Abdus-Salam Ojo Bello, commended Falegan’s gesture of showering encomiums on him. 

Earlier, a beneficiary, Ajayi Titilayo Precious, thanked ODF for his humanitarian services to the well-known pod people of Ekiti. She prayed that the lord would grant his heart desires

Meanwhile, purchasing JAMB forms is not his only area of philanthropy as he had recently settled the medical bills of indigent patients in Ekiti state and empowered the market women and traders.

He also recently gave motorists and commercial motorcyclists free fuel and promised to do more soon.
