OVER 70 STUDENTS TO RECEIVE FUNDS FROM THE FAROUK ALIU MAHAMA EDUCATIONAL FUND IN YENDI
Over the weekend, in line with my priority on education and human capital development, through the Farouk Aliu Mahama Educational Care Fund(FAMEC-FUND), I offered and presented Ghc75,000 worth of scholarship funds to seventy-five(75) tertiary students from Yendi to cover the payment of their tuition fees. The seventy-five(75) beneficiaries comprised of twenty-four females and fifty-one(51) males currently pursuing various courses at the country's public universities and colleges of education including; Computer Science, Nursing, Midwifery, Pharmacy, Business Administration, Social Communication, Biochemistry, Diploma in Education, Statistics and Mathematics, Agricultural Sciences amongst others. Addressing the short event I implored the students to rise beyond the circumstances of their birth and make their parents and community proud. "You have no reason to fail. We were like you some years back and you can be like us some years to come. The government is working hard to fix up your classrooms and to get you materials you need to learn. We are doing our part here too to pay your fees. But you have to do your part too. So, I expect alll of you to put in your best efforts to succeed. I expect great things from each of you. Don't let us down. Make us proud". I entreated the beneficiaries. Hon.Farouk Aliu Mahama MP, Yendi Constituency.
