“The selection process was meticulous and very transparent. We selected the best students through a rigorous evaluation, and those chosen by the school authority truly deserve this scholarship. Permit me to emphasize that this scholarship is not a one-time event; it’s a continuous exercise that will extend its reach to more schools in our community,” Aladeshonyin stated.
