“In the course of selecting this set of students, we have come to realise that there are so many of them in the campuses but we know we cannot take all of them at once and we have to do the little we can.

“We want to use it to encourage the people around and also prove to the people that ASUU is not all about strikes but also touching lives,” he said.

He called on other well-meaning Nigerians to join hands to support many young ones suffering on the campuses.

According to him, the selection process was based on application and several stages of screening to ensure the right persons emerged.

He said two of the beneficiaries got ₦200,000 each donated by the ASUU, National body while the other five got ₦50,000 each, which was donated by the university chapter.
