10 Kwara Govt. School Students bag Mike Omotosho scholarship


No fewer than 10 students drawn from  government owned Secondary Schools in Kwara State have been granted scholarship by the Mike Omotosho Student Empowerment Scheme (MỌSES).
Each of the public Secondary School Students were unveiled and presented with the scholarship cash equivalent, at a mini gathering in ilorin yesterday.
Speaking on rationale behind the initiative, the founder of Mike Omotosho Student Empowerment Scheme Titilayo Adedeji, described the project as geared towards keeping the memories of his brother, Dr. Mike Omotosho, a renowned Philanthropist who died few years ago, alive.
She said “This initiative was birthed in honour of my brother and mentor, Dr. Mike Omotosho who was a renowned Philanthropist throughout his sojourn on earth.
“Mike Omotosho who we’re honouring today was a product of public school, yet he went to attend the number 1 University in the world, the Havard University.
“So I encourage the beneficiaries to be undeterred, rather they should be religiously dedicated to their studies and go to conquer the world”
Giving background to the selection process and the journey so far of the initiative, Dr. Ayuba Abdulateef said “MOSES is a yearly project aimed at supporting students who would greatly benefit from the provision of learning aids such as laptops and scholarship. This scheme is named in honour of an icon, late Dr. Mike Omotosho.
“This is the second edition after inaugural  exercise which we kick-started last year, with Tertiary Institutions students being empowered with laptops among others.
“The beneficiaries for this year were selected via reaching out to the benefiting schools, wherein we specifically informed them to avail us, details of academically sound, but financially handicapped students. When the students were availed us, we cross checked their academic performance, also prodded into their financial incapability.
“The 10 beneficiaries Olawoyin Daniel (GDSS Fate), Bello Rasheedat (Barakat Community Secondary School) Olayinka Emmanuel (Senior Secondary School, Ita-alamu), Apalando Bashirat (Government High School), Awaisu Yusuf (Baboko Community Secondary School) among others all got #50,000 worth of scholarship each.
“We enjoin the beneficiaries to optimally utilise the donation for furtherance of their education and also implore them to also imbibe the culture of given back to the society and putting smiles on the face of the less privileged just like we’ve done today” he submitted
Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries
Apalando Bashirat said this gesture is highly appreciated, praying for the repose of the soul of the deceased.
“We appreciate the Mike Omotosho family for this initiative, this support is a lifeline with the realities of the Country today, may God replenish the family abundantly” she added.
