The newly sworn in caretaker committee of Abua-Odual has touched the ground running. The chairman of the ABOLGA CTC has shown that is has impatient with connecting the people of the LGA to the ongoing empowerment fever that is sweeping across Rivers state like a wild harmattan fire. Immediately after swearing in the members of the CTC, Hon Gift Igoma, the ABOLGA CTC chairman blew the hearts of many people away when he announced a monthly monetary package for all traditional rulers in the entire LGA.
Spurred by the overwhelming support he has received since resuming office, the young, energetic and charismatic chairman of Abua-Odual local government council has also announced the commencement of bursary payments to Abua-Odual students in higher institutions of learning. Speaking to our correspondent by telephone, Hon Igoma said registration for the bursary will commence next at the council secretariat in Ayama-Abua.
The payment of bursary to Abua-Odual students will come as a big relief to the students in view of the increased cost of living and high tuition fees of many schools, but more especially as this would be the first time in more than 12 years that ABOLGA student would be paid bursary.
Feel Rivers will update you with more information on the ABOLGA student bursary as we get more information.
