In his quest to contribute to increasing literacy rate in the constituency and ensure more youth have access to higher education, the Member of Parliament for Zabzugu, Jabaah John Bennam has provided financial support to a number of students in his constituency.

The scholarship package worth over twelve thousand Ghana cedis (GHs12, 270) was given to over 25 students from the constituency at various levels of education particularly tertiary and senior high schools.

Most of them had their school fees, admission fees and other related fees paid through the package. Being a poorly endemic area, most parents are unable to raise money to pay their children’s school fees especially at the SHS and tertiary level because fees are at the higher side.

They therefore need some support from well meaning individuals to be able to fulfill their academic dreams.

The MP however noted that the scholarship package is targeted at brilliant but needy students who are determined to excel.
