With the elections over, Vanguard reports that Chairman of Udenu Council, Amechi Nwodo, teachers of the school and and parents of the beneficiaries have appealed to the state government not to renege its promise.

Nwodo, who told Vanguard that the council had already forwarded the names of the pupils to the state government with their present classes and age for necessary action, says he hopes the government would not renege on the scholarship.
