The Chairman, Board of Directors, G. U. Okeke Transport Services Company Limited, Chief Godwin Ubaka Okeke has empowered over one hundred (100) indigent students in the state with his scholarship scheme.
The beneficiries were drawn from all the tiers of the nation’s educational institution.
The transport guru who will not want to reveal how much it cost him to keep the indigent beneficiaries in school said he derives joy from seeing people shedding tears of joy after he gets them empowered.
He pointed out that he floated the scholarship scheme as a way of appreciating God who has been so good to him.
Chief Okeke who is also the chairman, CEO of GU Okeke and Sons limited said it is a thing of joy for him to see students who would have dropped out of school becoming successful professionals.
He said it was for that singular reason that he decided to construct the English language department building which was converted to Chinese language development center at Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka and a three storey building accommodating four hundred students at Paul’s University Awka.
The GUO boss who is also the Chairman, Board of Trustees, Godwin & Patricia Okeke Foundation, urged the affluent to always remember the less privileged individuals in the society.
A beneficiary, who is pursuing a law degree in Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, Juliet Okafor thanked the transportation guru for his intervention noting that she wouldn’t have been able to continue her studies after the demise of her parents.
