Eunice Ortom to purchase JAMB 'forms' for Benue's female students

Determined to boost the level of girl-child education in Benue State, wife of the state gover­nor, Mrs. Eunice Ortom, is to purchase and present reg­istration pins (forms) of the Joint Admissions and Ma­triculation Board (JAMB) to female students of Benue extraction.
Mrs Ortom said the move underscores her commit­ment to ensure that the wid­ening literacy gap in state is bridged as well as her quest to uplift women, particularly the girl-child, who she said needs more attention to se­cure the future of the world.
This was contained in a press statement signed by her Senior Special Assistant on Administration and In­formation Communication Technology (ICT), Mr. Dan­iel Gbabo, and made avail­able to The AUTHORITY in Makurdi.
She noted that the gesture is equally aimed at promot­ing and encouraging girl-child education as against cultural and traditional practices that put female children in early family way.
According to the state­ment, the governor’s wife said that the goodwill is a product of her pet project, the Eunice Spring of Life Foundation (ESLF), adding that emphasis and priority will be given to those with science background.
The founder of ESLF ex­plained that the idea of giv­ing more to those with sci­ence background was in line with the working document of the present administra­tion’s “Our Collective Vision For a New Benue”.
She, however, warned against sharp practices and urged girls to conduct them­selves in dignified manners.
