  The immediate past Secretary to the Government of Imo State, Sir Jude Ejiogu, has offered scholarship to Imo youths in any university of their choice, after seeing the pure water hawkers escaped motor accident while trying to attend to customers as a result of the harsh economic meltdown.

Sir Ejiogu who was touched by the incident on his way back after attending a church service at Holy Cross Catholic Parish, Aladinma on Sunday, November 13, 2016 offered them scholarship as part of his social contributions to give indigent families the opportunity to be relevant in life.

The ex-Chief Scribe of Imo State did not only give the lucky pure water hawkers scholarship, but insisted on meeting with their parents to caution them on the danger of sending the little children out to hawk.

According to Sir Ejiogu, sending little children out to hawk on Sunday is not only an offense but an affront against the sensibility of humanity when they are supposed to be at the church as a mark of respect to God, pointing out that something like that would not be tolerated.

He therefore appealed to parents to take good care of their children and avoid risking their lives, while adopting the kids as his children who would be trained to any level they want in life.
