If the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, wins the September 28 Edo State governorship election, students in the state will have a lot to be happy about, as the candidate of the party, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has promised to pay bursary as well as give scholarships to Edo students in tertiary institutions.
According to Ize-Iyamu, this will give Edo State students access to quality and affordable education.
He stated this at a campaign rally at Ekosodin, a satellite community, serving as residence for thousands of students of University of Benin.
According to Ize-Iyamu, it was pathetic that the current All Progressives Congress, APC, government in the state neglected the community in terms of provision of roads, water supply and electricity despite huge votes recorded from the community.
