All Progressives Congress (APC) Professionals’ Council has said about 37,000 youths would benefit from its seventh scholarship scheme.
In a statement, its Director-General, Seyi Bamigbade said 1,000 youths will benefit from each state, including Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
He said the programme, ‘Renewed Hope Scholarship Scheme’, in collaboration with National Image Scholarship, is aimed at engaging young people in advancing their education but lack funds.
He noted this is in line with President Bola Tinubu’s agenda of providing equal opportunity for all.
Bamigbade noted education plays a pivotal role in raising frontiers of development and keeping youths engaged.
He added: “All Progressives Congress Professionals Council and National Image Magazine, as a Public-Private Partnership (PPP), offers to support less privileged young school leavers with five credits, including English and Mathematics, to advance in their university, polytechnic and college of education programme, with free admission into our Public Private Partnership Higher Institutions in Nigeria with scholarship throughout their careers. We are looking at 1,000 youths from each state, including FCT.
“There is no limit to what our youths can accomplish as more opportunities will be presented to them in pursuing their careers. It is therefore a novel approach to create an Educational Scholarship Support which enhances productivity and empowerment through the acquisition of quick skill-sets entrepreneurship for immediate employment opportunities, thereafter introducing participants to relevant professional firms for Industrial Attachment.
“The targeted participants are youths between ages 17 and 30, who have their five credits including Mathematics and English in WAEC, NECO, (awaiting result), undergraduate, HND Conversion, academic and Bachelor Degree Programme.”
