THE Gbagi Foundation under the chairmanship of former Minister of State for Education, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, has paid the 2017/2018 West African Examination Council, WAEC, enrolment fee for all students of Oginibo Secondary School, Oginibo, his hometown in Ughelli South Local Government Area, Delta State.
The beneficiaries are mainly indigenes of Oginibo, Imode, Eyara, Obi-Ayagha and other communities in the local government area.
A director of Gbagi Foundation, Chief Emuoboh Gbagi, who is an Executive Assistant to the Delta State Governor on Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, presented the draft cheque for the enrolment fee to the principal of Oginibo Secondary School, Oginibo, Mr. E.A, Naibe, weekend.
Receiving the cheque, Mr. Naibe commended the Foundation, especially Chief Gbagi, for the “rare gesture”, saying that the school authority would have found it difficult to enrol the students, this year, “due to the economic hardship being experienced in the country today.”
