The Ekiti State Government has distributed no fewer than 2,000 free
Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) forms to vulnerable but

government areas of the state.
The wife of Ekiti State Governor, Mrs Bisi Fayemi, while flagging-off

students are encouraged to further their education.

According to the governor’s wife, the beneficiaries were chosen having
obtained a minimum of six credit passes in West African Examinations
Council, (WAEC) or National Examinations Council of Nigeria (NECO) at
one sitting.
She assured that the Fayemi administration would leave no stone
unturned in preparing the future leaders of Ekiti with requisite
qualification to enable them improve on the solid foundation that is
being laid by the present government.

as creation of profile, provision of E-Training, JAMB online
registration and thumb printing exercise at no cost to the candidates.
“I urge the beneficiaries to reciprocate the gesture by being
committed to your studies and make sure you pass your JAMB
examination. You should also desist from acts capable of truncating
your future.”
In his remarks the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology,
Mr Foluso Daramola said that the distribution of the free JAMB forms
to the qualified youths shows how important is education and learning
