Odiolowo-Ojuwoye LCDA today distributed annual free GCE forms to the indigent students within the LCDA.
Speaking at the event, which was held in the council hall, the council Vice-Chairman, Hon Seyi Jakande, commended the excellent performance of the candidates.
Hon Jakande, who represented the Chairman of the council, Hon Rasaq Olusola Ajala's, stated that the council's effort in the educational development of the residents is aimed at getting the best out of the students that applied for the annual free GCE form.
"MOCK exams were conducted to identify the best among the numerous applicants for the forms," Hon Jakande said.
He added that the initiative will further promote reading culture among the students.
"This administration believes that those who performed well in their GCE MOCK exams will repeat the excellent performance in the main exam," he said.
Jakande said that those who have benefited from the initiative in the past are already in different tertiary institutions across the country and are doing well in their academic pursuit.
He, therefore, implored the present beneficiaries to focus on their educational pursuit, stressing that they might be the ones who will help others coming behind them.
While responding to questions from journalists after the program, Hon Jakande said, "We don't just give out the forms to the indigent students but have a designed template to ensure that those who are focused and determined among them benefit from the initiative."
He further explained that the process was transparent as the questions were well guarded against leakage and the exam was conducted in a conducive hall.
"Conference marking was done immediately after the exams in the full glare of the press and the people," the vice-chairman said.
He added, "The process has even encouraged some people who have already got their forms to partake in the MOCK exam to test their strengths and level of preparedness for the exam proper."
He advised the beneficiaries to see the initiative as support from the government, which should not be taken for granted.
"It is an assurance that we are going to be there for them and those coming next as it has been our practice to follow up their progress till they pass the GCE proper and provide free JAMB to those who wish to further their studies to tertiary institutions," he concluded.
Adediran Faiz Adedapo from Igbo-Owu Secondary School who scored the highest mark in the exam said he got the information about the gesture through his friends and decided to give it a trial.
"My WAEC was canceled last year and some friends told me about this exam, and I decided to give it a trial. I prepared very well and I came top. I am very excited. I want to thank Hon Ajala and his team for giving me this opportunity, God will continue to bless them," he prayed.
Mrs. Adewoye from Oyo Street, a parent of one of the beneficiaries commended the administration of Hon Ajala for providing the opportunity for the students to obtain the forms.
She stated that it would be nice if the initiative could be sustained. She stressed that it would stimulate the academic interest of students within the LCDA.
Another parent, Mrs. Aishat Awosanya, from Railway Line, thanked Hon Ajala for the initiative. She said the money for the forms would be useful for something else.
She prayed to God to bless him and members of his cabinet.
At the event were the leader of the legislative arm of government in the LCDA, Hon Rilwan Ola Ajenifuja, some Councilors, Supervisors, Special Advisers, Heads of Departments, and management staff.
