The Beneficiaries of Hon. Pharm. Obinna Chris Emeneka’s Scholarship Scheme were on Friday handed over their cheques in a brief ceremony held at Anambra state House of Assembly premises amidst jubilation.
Among the beneficiaries were the 50 Students of Madonna Secondary School and Virgin Mary Convent Umueri, who paid him a courtesy visit on the 14th of July 2018 at the Anambra State House of Assembly Complex. Others are 2 PhD students, 5 MSc students and 13 Undergraduate students picked from various communities of Anambra East.
At the receipt of the cheques, Beneficiaries, their Parents and all present at the complex could not hold back their emotions. As they were thrown into heavy jubilation, thanking God for blessing Anambra East with such a kind man.
In his remarks, the People’s Legislator said that his huge investment in education is borne out of his love for education and the need to assist parents in bearing the burden of sponsoring their children’s education at this harsh economic condition of Nigeria.
The quintessential Legislator encouraged the recipients to take their studies seriously, noting that there couldn’t be any meaningful human capital development in our area without good education. That they should shun all anti social activities that will distract them from achieving their set goals.
At the end, the beneficiaries prayed God to continue to bless Hon. Emeneka in all his endeavours and for Anambra East constituency to always have a benevolent and humane representative like Ijele Omabala. It ended with praises to God.
