Former Executive Director, Projects of the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC, Engr Dr Samuel Adjogbe, has tasked students on the need for adequate preparation, which he says is a prerequisite for academic excellence.
The APC chieftain stated this during an unscheduled visit by the leadership of Engr Dr Samuel Adjogbe Foundation (SAF), to Anglican Girls Grammar School, Ughelli and Government College Ughelli both in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.
Recall that the Foundation through its Scholarship Scheme had provided a total of 23 scholarships to beneficiaries of the scheme in both schools from 2019/20 academic session to date. The visit served as an avenue to monitor and assess the performance of the beneficiaries.
Adjogbe who urged the beneficiaries to guide their education jealously and challenged them to sustain excellent performance also appealed to the management and teachers of both schools to keep a special watch on the students and relate with him any challenges, when the need arises.
Meanwhile, the former EDP gave some pockets money to the scholarship beneficiaries in Anglican Girls Grammar School, Ughelli, while he paid for the purchase of two pairs of uniforms, two pairs of hostel wear and a pair of sandal each for the thirteen beneficiaries in Government College Ughelli.
Applauding his philanthropic gestures in separate remarks, the principal of the Anglican Girls Grammar School, Ughelli, Rev. G. I. Anago (JP), gave a resounding appreciation for the kind generosity towards human capital development and prayed that God should always meet the financier at every point of his need.
On his part, the principal of Government College, Ughelli, Mr Samson Obor noted that when he was posted to the school, Engr Dr Samuel Adjogbe, FNSE was a name always ringing in his ears either through the massive road network constructed in the school or through his scholarship program. He commended the efforts and assured me that the school will not let him down in fulfilling his drive for human excellence and development.
It is worthy to note that the scholarship program is being managed by the Rotary Club, Ughelli Metropolis, District 9141 on behalf of the Engr Dr Samuel Adjogbe Foundation.
