Sen. Buba pays UTME fees for 350 Science students in his constituency

Sen. Shehu Buba, representing Bauchi South at the Senate, has paid the 2023–2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) fees for no fewer than 350 science students in his constituency.

Mr. Mohammed Dahiru, the Senator’s Programmes Supervisor, said in Bauchi on Monday that, in addition, all the beneficiaries will also be sponsored by the Senator at any university of their choice within the country.

Dahiru added that the senator urged the beneficiaries to be more serious and read well to pass their exams.

Some students who are the beneficiaries of the gesture commended Sen. Buba for paying their fees.

They told newsmen in Bauchi that the gesture had relieved their parents of the burden of paying for their UTME fees as they kept struggling to put food on their tables.

Jabir Khalid, one of the beneficiaries, admitted that his parents couldn’t pay his examination fees because they had no money.

He extended his gratitude to the senator, adding that Buba also organised UTME lessons for them so that they could pass the examinations.

“Sen. Buba came to my rescue and paid for me and many other students. And I shall be writing my exam on April 19,” he said.

Similarly, another beneficiary, Khadija Hassan, who was elated by the gesture, said her parents tried and paid for the first UTME she wrote but couldn’t raise money for this second one.

“I want to call on the senator to continue with his good deeds,” she said.

Also, Abubakar Ibrahim commended the senator for paying for their UTME fees in this difficult time when things are hard, especially for the poor masses.

“Some politicians don’t care about people’s education, not minding if you can afford to go to school or not.

“However, Senator Buba has shown us that he cares about our education to the extent of paying our UTME fees, and I am among the lucky beneficiaries.”

“I also wrote the JAMB mock examination, which I passed. The main examination will be held on April 19,” he said. (NAN)
