LP candidate, Abeni Azeez, donates furniture to Jattu Secondary School


The Labour Party ,LP, candidate for Etsako federal constituency, Mr Yakubu Abeni Azeez,in his continuous way of touching the hearts and the souls of Etsako people as well as endears himself to the electorate ahead of the 2023 general election, recently donated set of furniture and educational materials to Jattu Secondary School, Jattu.

The donated items are set of modern furniture comprising chairs, tables, and writing materials aimed at easing the agony suffered by students who are forced to sit on the bare floor, in most instances, to receive learning.

The donation is seen as a “genuine and pure act of goodwill” considering the premium the majority of the parents in the area place on education.

Donations seem to be a worthy course and a second nature to the budding politician who is making fast in-roads in Etsako.

Already, the Abeni Azeez Foundation has mapped out schools in the district to benefit from the activities of the Foundation which is targeted at the renewal of the dilapidated schools infrastructure in the district.

Mr. Paul Okhipo, the DG of the Abeni Azeez Campaign Organization, presented the items on behalf of the candidate to Bar Oscar Igbadumhe, the legal adviser of the Old Boys Association of the school, who received the donated items on behalf of the school and the Jattu community.

While handing over the donated items, Mr. Paul said the donation was not politically motivated and urged that there should be no attempt to give political colouration to the action of the donor, adding Hon Azeez has always donated to the schools before now based on the conviction that education is the best legacy any society can hand over to the next generation.

Bar Igbadumhe, who received the donated items on behalf of the school, thanked the donor for investing in the education of the next generation of leaders, insisting further that the type of Hon Azeez are “rare” and admonished other wealthy individuals to emulate the Hon Abeni example by adopting schools rather than leave the government and the parents to bear the huge burden of providing for the schools alone.

An obviously elated members of the school board who had difficulties containing their joy at the occasion poured torrents of encomium on the donor, Hon Abeni Azeez for coming to the aid of the school.

They noted with dismay how Jattu Secondary School, one of the oldest government owned secondary schools in Etsako West, has battled over the years with the plague of the dearth of critical infrastructure.

They stated further that such a situation does not only stifle the teacher’s ability to impact knowledge but also hinders learning by the student and then assured the donor that the donation will go a long way in improving the quality of education
