Gbaramatu students appeal to govt for rehabilitation grants

By Emma Arubi
WARRI—IJAW students of Gbaramatu extraction in Delta State have once again appealed to government at all levels to come to their aid through rehabilitation grants to enable return to school after the militants/JTF violent clash of May that rendered their parents and guardians homeless.

The students, in a statement, expressed disappointments that their previous plea to all arms of government have fallen on deaf ears and frowned on what they called insensitivity of the government towards their plight.

The statement signed by President of Gbaramatu Students Association, Comrades Jackson Timiyan, decried the creation of interventionist agencies by the government, describing them as conduit pipes that servesdonly the interest of their masters and not the poor masses.

Noting that the militants/JTF clash in Gbaramatu has left their sponsors in penury, the students called on all well meaning Nigerians to join them in appealing to the federal, state and local governments to give them a rehabilitation grant to enable them continue their studies.
