The Oke Mapo town hall Owo, venue of the Hon Oluwole Ogunmolasuyi free jamb Scholarship was full to the brim on Sunday, 4th April, 2021 as the fifth edition of the annual jamb Scholarship took place.
The scholarship program is a project born out of the vision of seeing a well developed and educated youth in Owo local government and its environs by the member representing Owo Constituency I at the Ondo State House of Assembly, Hon Oluwole Ogunmolasuyi.

Testimony abound as to lives that have been touched positively by the intervention, even as the project have produced some serving Corp members who are currently serving.
