The Member of Parliament (MP) for Yendi Farouk Aliu Mahama has granted scholarship worth Ghs210,000 to 123 students of Yendi covering pre-tertiary and tertiary. 

Through the Farouk Aliu Mahama Edu­cational Care Fund (FUMEC-FUND), brilliant but needy students studying various courses in the uni­versities and other tertiary institu­tions yesterday received the scholarship. 

The beneficiaries were drawn from the Yendi constituency and its surrounding communities in the Upper East Region with many re­ceiving GH¢10, 000 while others received GH¢5,000 to pay their academic fees.

The Scholarship, launched in 2021 has seen more than 5,000 students from both the tertiary and pre-tertiary institutions benefitting.

Speaking at a short ceremony to disburse the fund yesterday, the MP said it was a pledge he made to the people of Yendi during the 2020 general elections which he was fulfilling, the report said. 

“It has always been my vision to empower the youth of the constit­uency through education and this scholarship scheme is a tangible manifestation of the vision.”

“As an elected representative of the people, it is my duty to bridge this gap and provide opportunities for growth and development,” he stated.
