…promises to absorb best performing candidates in Arthur Javis University on full-scheme scholarship.
Renowned benefactor, Sir Arthur Javis Archibong and founder of Arthur Javis University, Akpabuyo has launched a free JAMB registration exercise for all eligible indigenes of Akpabuyo and Bakassi Local Government Areas of Cross River State.
Beneficiaries of this magnanimity are SS3 students across Akpabuyo and Bakassi who are eligible to write JAMB.
Recently, Sir Jarvis had engaged on a tour in the said two local government areas searching for students qualified to sit for the exams. Follow-which, names of qualified candidates were immediately collated and gazetted for full funding of the 2021/2022 Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination registration.
According to the benefactor, this gesture was out of his desire to encourage students of these two local government areas towards being passionate for education and to further reduce financial burden on their parents. He gave some analysis of financial status of majority of the families in these two local government areas and concluded that for students in these areas to succeed academically and otherwise, there must be some sort of support from well meaning citizens.
Stressing the peculiarity of these areas, Sir Jarvis emphasized that the solution to the rising challenges is simply ‘education’ as it exposes the mind for growth, development and productivity.
He further promised that those who will perform exceedingly well in the 2021/2022 JAMB examination would be absorbed into Arthur Jarvis University on full scholarship.
