• A National Youth Service Corps member, serving at St Brendan’s Secondary School, Iyamoyong in Cross River State, Joshua Orege, has given scholarships to six orphans in the council.

    At the event held at the Local Government Council Hall in Obubra, Orege said he gave the scholarship to reduce illiteracy among the less privileged and give them access to quality education.

    Orege, who graduated from the Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, as the best Chemistry student said: “After observing that for several weeks these children did not go to school because nobody could pay their school fees, I decided to place the burden on myself to the best of my ability.”

    The Cross River State NYSC Coordinator, Alhaji Habibu Kurawa praised Orege for supporting educational advancement in the state.

    Represented by the HOD, Community Development Service (CDS), Mr Chuka Osuagwu, he advised the beneficiaries to utilize the opportunity well and stay focused.

    He also charged other corps members to emulate the good work done by Orege.

    One of the beneficiaries, Ekpang Gift Ngbongha, an SS1 pupil of Egara Community Secondary School, Iyametet, appreciated Orege for “giving them hope to return to school.”

    The event was graced by dignitaries, including traditional rulers, NYSC officials, school administrators, and guardians of the children.
