UTME score of blind student

Yenne revealed Eky sought support for a blind student studying communication arts and another who scored 230 in the 2024 UTME.

The UTME candidate has no hope of a scholarship to acquire tertiary education. Yenne commended Eky for her selflessness in championing the cause of the visually impaired.

His Facebook post in part:

“Eky blind, a physically challenged educator, content creator, and advocate for people living with disabilities paid me a courtesy visit at my office today.

“The most interesting part of this visit was the fact that she didn’t come to seek help for herself but wanted to share the burden of two young, ambitious young ones living with disabilities.

“One a blind student studying Communication Arts but with so much financial burden and another who just wrote Jamb and scored 230 in the result but with no hope of sponsorship…”

JAMB announced that 577 blind students took the 2024 UTME examination.
