The lawmaker, under the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), broke the news in an interview with NAN on Friday.

Tobun said that this was the sixth edition of the distribution of free JAMB forms to youths in the Epe community.

“The beneficiaries for this year were more than the previous edition and they were drawn across Epe Constituency. Education is the bedrock of development of any community or society and I believe once the youths are built educationally, the nation is also built,’’ he said.

According to him, the initiative was informed by his quest to build a better society by developing the youths through education.

“I give out the free JAMB forms to the youths because I want to encourage them to grow mentally, spiritually and economically. With such development, we can have the respite that we have built a safe, secured and prosperous environment,” Tobun also said.

He also disclosed that he has many programmes toward empowering farmers, fishermen, and people with disabilities in his constituency.

“The idea is to give back to the community that made me what I am today. My constituency people believe in my quality representation, hence, this encourages me to do more by giving back to the people,” he added.
