The 2002 set of Oyemekun Grammar School, Akure (OGSA) have offset the West African Examination Council (WAEC) fees of some Indigent Students of the school.
It was reported to the set that some students of the school could not pay their WAEC fees which led to the crowd funding by the old boys within a month.
The presentation became public as the school management led by the principal, Mr Dayo Adebiyi felt the need for such gesture to be publicised in order to encourage others to do more.
Adebiyi while thanking the 2002 set for the donation prayed for God’s provision for the old boys.
He said OGSA has been lucky to have the old boys always looking back to give to the school.
He advised the students who benefitted from the gesture to make use of the opportunity to read hard and pass their examinations.
Earlier, the President of the set, Timilehin Oni appreciated the opportunity given to the set to make the donation on the assembly ground and thanked the staff (Mrs Akin Falusi and Mrs Adurogboye Yemisi) who identified the need of the indigent students.
He said the population of the school had since grown when compared to the time he studied with his colleagues.
Oni advised the students to be law abiding and assured them that more goodies from the set are still coming their way.
The president was accompanied to the presentation by the General Secretary and Public Relations Executive of the set, Olusegun Hakeem Adebumiti and Welfare Director, Tunde Ajayi.
The 2002 set are students who schooled between 1996 and 2002 at Oyemekun Grammar School Akure popularly called the ‘only school’.
