Wife of the Benue State Governor Mrs Eunice Ortom has promised to give out free JAMB Forms to all Female Science Students in the State.
She made this known on Friday while meeting with women to assess the progress of her NGO, Eunice Spring of Life Foundation.
The NGO initiates and promotes programmes that would assist women and girls in the areas of education, health and agriculture.
She said her emphasis on the sciences was to encourage more girls to become professionals in science-related fields, after observing that very few women were doctors, pharmacists, engineers, architects and medical scientists in Benue.
The governor’s wife said the priority given to the sciences was also in line with the working document of the Samuel Ortom-led administration that emphasised collective vision for a new Benue.
She promised to initiate more programmes that would uplift the girl-child to tap the massive potentialities of women toward national growth.
