“Dr. Muhammad was supported by the Secretary, Adeyemi Isiaka Gbadebo, and myself,” Habeebullahi stated.

“Akinorun Grammar School Ikirun was secured as a venue, and volunteers, though paid stipends, were recruited to teach them.

He said examinations were conducted after the two-month training and overall best candidates, about eleven of them, were chosen and sponsored for the UTME.
