Not less than 100 Youths in Ajegunle can now sit for the 2020 JAMB UTME, thanks to the philanthropy of Chairman/CEO, Flyici Limited and Obabest property LTD Mr. Mike Ikenna Ilikwu who few days ago doled out 100 JAMB forms.
He told Community Watch Plus that this gesture is borne out of his desire to take the youths off the streets and make them see education as a priority and nothing more.
“My dream is to see a crime free Ajegunle, an Ajegunle where our youths stay off the streets and concentrate more on education. A lot of youths in Ajegunle turned to violence because they never had the opportunity or anyone to send them to school” he began.
“On my part, the forms I am giving out is a stepping stone towards the actualization of my target as I am also creating bursaries for the less privileged but intelligent ones amongst the 100 so as to ease their educational pursuit” he quipped.
“One thing is writing the exams, another is gaining admission and the final part is seeing yourself through school. I am working round the clock to see a way of stringing this three together.”
The fair complexioned philanthropist is not one known for too many words. His gesture has been largely felt by his alma mater, Topfield College where he is the patron of Blue House, and some other youth oriented organizations who are bent on taking Ajegunle to the global stage.
His anchorman man in Ajegunle, Mr. Okulaja Olakintan was quick to point out that Mr. Ilikwu is focusing more on the educational sector and that he has been doing for a while now but has decided to do it silently.
“Oba White is someone that doesn’t like making noise, he believes in action. Very soon, the community will benefit more from his philanthropy” he posited.
