A member of Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Gbolahan Yishawu representing Eti-Osa constituency 02 on Thursday counseled candidates who came to register for free GCE forms, on importance of education and its impact to the nation at large.
Hon. Gbolahan Yishawu spoke at the 7th edition in series of free GCE forms distribution to his constituents in Lagos.
Yishawu, who lectured the candidates for over an hour, told them to carefully choose their course of study and take the opportunity made available to them with all seriousness.
According to him, “I am happy that you came around to pick the forms. Your time is your time and you cannot work with somebody’s else time. I will advise you to study hard. Some parents that are not educated spend more to attain education for their children because they know the value of education.”
He therefore appealed to parents to guide their children in choosing course of study in higher institution and not to force them to study a particular course.
In a related development, Yishawu posited that distribution of the forms is part of his commitment and support to his constituents.
Some of the candidates interviewed appreciated their lawmaker for his kind gesture and called other lawmakers to emulate him.
Mustaqim Olayiwola, a 15-year-old boy thanked Yishawu for making the opportunity available to people who could not afford to buy the GCE forms.
In her submission, miss Adewusi Adebukola who also appreciated the lawmaker for his kind gesture, said she would like to study Business Administration in the higher institution.
