The youth wing of Ohuhu Welfare Union Federated has earmarked about five hundred thousand naira to pay West African Examination Council, WAEC, fees for some indigent students from the clan.
The president Augustine Owubiko, made this known when his executive paid a visit to the President General of the parent body, high chief Obi Aguocha, he said they took the decision because of their believe that the best way to secure the future of clan was to invest in the education of the young ones.
Augustine Onwubiko, however, appealed to the PG to use his good office to garvernise Ohuhu sons and daughters to assist them increase the number of students that will benefit from their gesture, “we have many brilliant students in our community today that have dropped out of school because of lack of fund to pay WAEC or school fees, we would like to increase the number of beneficiaries but for lack of fund. We want to appeal to you to call on well meaning sons and daughters of our land to support us” he said.
The youth through their president commended the President General of the parent body for what they described as his pragmatic, peaceful and development oriented leadership that has brought respect and honour to Ohuhu land.

High Chief Obi Aguocha, commended them for chosen to invest in the education of the youth, especially the indigent students, “what you people are doing is sowing seeds that will yield good fruits in future. Non of us knows which child will become the president of Nigeria tomorrow and am sure when that happens that child would not forget that this present executive led by Augustine Onwubiko laid the foundation of his success” he said.
Chief Aguocha promised to look into their request of calling on well meaning individuals to help in offsetting the school and WAEC fees of some indigent students. On their request for him to go for a second term in office, he said it is always better to quit when the ovation is high. “Before now it is always one term but after the last general conference of Ndi Ohuhu the option to go for a second term was enshrined. I felt it was done to allow go for a second term, I appreciate for that act, but I will not exercise that option. We were able to do appreciably well because I am blessed with set of executives from the traditional rulers, the youth group, women wing and elders council who believed in the need for Ohuhu to move forward”.
