By Babatunde Kaka
The Provost of the first College of Primary Education in Africa, Michael Otedola College of Primary Education, Noforija, Epe, Lagos State, Associate Professor Nosiru Onibon and students have commended the benevolent disposition and altruistic spirit of Hon Wale Raji, Lawmaker representing Epe Federal Constituency at the National Assembly.
The commendation of the lawmaker is spurred by the timely financial assistance he rendered to the students of the college who were having difficulty paying their tuition fee.
The College hierarchy was full of praises for the Federal Lawmaker’s intervention in facilitating the tuition fee of 8 students of the college who were in desperate financial straits.
Reacting to the development, Associate Professor Nosiru Onibon gave kudos to the Legislative Aides of Hon Wale Raji, noting that the team is superb in their resolve to feed him with progressive ideas.
He, therefore, charged the beneficiaries to make wise use of the window of opportunity presented to them to pass their exams as they have no excuses.
” Let’s specially commend your team for assisting Honourable Wale Raji and feeding him with progressive ideas”
” As for you students, this is an award for you. The ball is played into your court and it is now left for you to play it as appropriate. You do not have any excuse to tell anybody why you’ve refused to pass because one of those circumstances that can take you out of the classroom is for you not to pay your tuition.
But history is rewriting itself now through you and the best way you can pay back Honourable Wale Raji with this gesture is for you to do well and come out in flying colours. If you can not beat the best, be among the first liners”, he averred.
Management members and Senior Officials of the College present during the presentation of cash payment to the beneficiaries which held on Thursday 16th April 2021 at the Provost Office are Associate Prof Nosiru Onibon (Provost), Dr Imam, Dr MA Shittu (DSA), Mr Edu, Mr Adewale, Mr Ekemode, Mr Idowu Akinbode, Mrs Johnson Bawa, Mrs Akesode and Mrs Ijale.
Members of the Wale Raji Constituency Team include Hon Ahmed Moruf, Hon Akogun Wale Raji Anomo, Hon Hassan Bashiru and Hon. Agbaraojo Mohammed ( APC Chairman, Eredo LCDA ). Students representatives include Rufai Sulaimon, NULASS President, Comrade Edu Sulaimon, Comrade Ismaila Ibrahim and Comrade Sanni Zainab.
According to the Senior Legislative Aide (SLA) to the MHR, Mr Bashiru Hassan, Ekohotblog gathered that the intervention came on the heels of an SOS letter addressed to the MHR by the responsible leadership of Comrade Rufai Sulaimon, the President, National Union of Lagos State Students, NULASS MOCPED Chapter. Mr Bashir revealed that the responsive MHR, Hon Wale Raji, swiftly sent his team to the DEAN, Student Affairs of the College, Dr MA Shittu, to verify the tuition payment status of the affected students.
The NULASS President, MOCPED Chapter, Comrade Rufai Sulaimon in a telephone interview with Ekohotblog expressed delight and elation towards the gesture and urged the Lawmaker not to relent in his pursuit of tremendous and responsive service delivery to his constituents in all facets of life. He noted that he looked forward to a more robust relationship with the office of the MHR as regard students matters.
