Egbin Power Plc, the nation’s biggest power station, has awarded scholarships to 14 students from its host communities as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility.
The company said it remained committed to its CSR programmes for its host communities namely; Egbin, Ipakan and Ijede, in Ikorodu, to contribute to their growth and development.
The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Egbin Power, Mr. Kola Adesina, said at the award ceremony in Lagos, “Today, we were able to put together a programme to offer scholarships to academically excellent students and students from the local regions that otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend schools like Powerfields. We think what this is going to do is that it is going to enrich the communities, Egbin and the nation.
Peavey said Egbin Power had spent at least N750m in the last three years on CSR programmes.
The Project Manager, Axiom Learning Solutions, the technical consultants for the scholarship programme, Ms. Ajoke Omoware, said there were two categories of scholars, adding that the first category comprised scholars selected from the three host communities while the second category comprised scholars selected from Powerfields Group of Schools.
