Rep member offers 10 Isoko students scholarship to Madonna varsity 

The member representing Isoko North/South Federal Constituency, Rep. Ajirioghene J. Ukodhiko has fulfilled his campaign promise of offering scholarship to Isoko students that score 300 and above in the just concluded UTME examination.

During his campaign last year, Ukodikho promised scholarships to students from Isoko North and South Federal Constituency who would do well in their pre-entry examination (JAMB), and are desirous of studying professional courses.

In a statement posted on Facebook and seen by Blueprint, Sunday in Abuja, Ukodikho said “I am delighted to announce the fulfilment of another of our campaign promises.

“It has always been my desire to champion a cause that will academically empower the Isoko child and strategically position the Isoko Nation at the apex of academic excellence-and-professionalism in the future. 

“This initiative marks a significant step towards achieving that goal, and I am confident that its success will further inspire our students and foster healthy academic competition.”

According to him, “the emphasis was not only on merit but also on parents/guardians financial status, clan, and local government area of the students who submitted their JAMB scores for the scholarship (one per clan/LGA).”
