Yahaya Bello Prevents PDP Candidate, Natasha’s N5million WAEC Grant To Secondary School Students

The Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, has barred Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, the Kogi Central Senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), from paying the WAEC fees of secondary school students in the senatorial district of the state.

Recall that Akpoti-Uduaghan had on December 11, 2022, announced her intention to donate N5 million to offset the WAEC fees of students in the five local government areas of the Kogi Central senatorial district.

But in a recent development, the state government had in a letter, asked all schools to obtain permission for any internal or external program.

An anonymous source had remarked: “He even called a physical meeting of school
principals to warn them against taking the grant,”
