The Senator representing Ogun West District, Chief Tolu Odebiyi, has given scholarships to  54 tertiary institution students from the district.
Speaking during the 3rd TOD undergraduates scholarship award ceremony and the launch of the Tolu Odebiyi Foundation in Ilaro, over the weekend, the lawmaker explained that he decided to offer the award to ensure that brilliant students from his district are recognised and assisted to excel.
He said: “No student should be allowed to drop out of school on the account of the inability of his parents to fund his or her education.”
Odebiyi also announced that he had secured the nod of the  Federal Government to sponsor the Masters and Doctorate degree programs of students from the district, adding that two students would be sponsored to pursue each of their programs overseas for the next four years.
The senator expressed displeasure over the activities of some men of the Nigeria Customs Service in the border area of Ogun West.
He urged the Federal Government to explore the possibility of engaging youths in border areas in the country, as a way of curbing smuggling.
