Talking to this reporter on phone, Mangoh Jones Tanko said the scholarship fund is intended to support a group in society that has often been neglected. He said the fund is not only to support those in school but also to support those who are to go to school but lack the financial means. "The Nkambe council is putting in 2 million FCFA, Hon. Awudu is putting 2 million FCFA, and the Ndu Council and the MP for Ndu will chip in 1million FCFA each. So our seed fund for the scholarship stands at 4 million FCFA" Mangoh told this reporter. He said the scholarship is to make traditional rulers more responsible and remove the dirty tag that make people to look at them as "royal beggars".
