FESSU Backs Multi-million Naira Online Contest For Ekiti Students


Federation of Ekiti State Students’ Union (FESSU), an umbrella body of indigenous students of Ekiti State, has endorsed a multi-million naira online contest tagged ‘Students Against Hunger Online Contest’ even as it encouraged Ekiti students to compete for the attractive prices.

The students’ body, through its National Union Government, said the contest is an initiative of Richlife Africa Project Limited for tertiary institutions students, graduates awaiting NYSC, serving corps members and recent corps members who fall within 16 and 30 years old.

Speaking at a press conference in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, on Thursday, the President of the union, Comrade Charles Awolola, said the contest would take financial burdens off winners.

Explaining the modalities of the contest, Awolola said, ”Registration for this contest is open to 10, 000 participants who will be engaging in simple tasks of entertainment, sports and educational activities of their choices from the comfort of their homes or schools to attract votes from their families, friends and fans. They would be required to upload their various tasks periodically as would be directed by the organisers on their social media handles, majorly Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and tag the contest’s handles.”

According to him, 301 winners would emerge with a participant winning the star price of N100m and Global Ambassador Against Hunger (GAAH) Crown, while first runner ups of 100 participants would win N10m each and second runner ups of 200 contestants would win N5m each.

He added that 200 voters would also win cars from Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company with the aim of empowering Nigerian businesses and its citizens for radical economic growth.

He noted that the union decided to endorse the contest ”having critically reviewed the concept behind this programme and the projects of the initiators in the past, especially her ‘Project Save the Hungry’ through which poor and hungry people were fed during the lockdown occasioned by COVID-19 in the year 2019, coupled with the wide acceptance of the Students Against Hunger Online Contest by critical stakeholders in students/youths constituency and the testimonies of already registered participants”.

While encouraging eligible youths to participate en mass with the belief that FESSU members would excel, Awolola said the contest would ”go a long way in building young legitimate millionaires who will become employers of labour and be self-reliant financially”.

Meanwhile, members are to contact any of the leaders of the union for registration or visit www.richlifeafrica.ng.
