The co-founder-cum-Executive-Director of Lamin Institute of Professional Studied (LIPS), Dr. Daniel Osagie, has called on parents to take advantage of a golden opportunity by educating their sons and daughters at no cost at LIPS.

In an interview with The Point, Dr. Osagie said the institution is presently offering scholarship packages to dozens of students at both branches. According to him, LIPS is the best institution for helping students to get jobs and for this reason they are offering scholarships for young people to study a range of courses at LIPS.

He explained that the motive behind the noble gesture is to offer everybody in the society equal access to a quality, professional education irrespective of family background. He said the priority is to give access to those from underprivileged backgrounds.

"We also give priority to girls and those with disabilities because we believe in the empowerment of women," he said. He also emphasised the contribution of LIPS in making skills work noting that when a child is educated the whole nation is educated.
