Trustee manager to the Charles Bebeye Ndiomu Foundation, Vetiva Trustees Limited, has announced the award of 22 scholarships to children of some of the deceased rank and file of the Nigerian Armed Forces.
This move, according to a statement by the company on Tuesday, was on the sidelines of the 2018 Armed Forces Remembrance Day.
The statement presented by Vetiva Trustee’s representative, Theresa Orji, explained that, “This year marks the fifth edition of the awards which was established in 2014 to ensure the children of our nation’s fallen heroes have access to education. Since its establishment, the number of awardees of the scholarship has grown steadily.”
The foundation did not fail to extend its appreciation to the Nigerian Armed Forces for its continued co-operation and assistance in the dissemination of information as well as the collation and verification of the recipients. Orji expressed the foundation’s profound gratitude to the various divisions of the Armed Forces involved in ensuring that the foundation’s objective for the awards was achieved year-to-year.
As with previous awards, recipients of the 2018 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Scholarship awards hail from different states of the federation, with 16 out of 22 scholarships given out to new scholars and the rest to returning scholars.
