The event which took place on the campus of Government Technical College, GTS , Kumba saw the Divisional Delegate of Secondary Education for Meme, Casmir Abunaw Aghim receiving the benches.
Ayuk while speaking at the ceremony said, the donation is necessitated by the level of arson on schools within the context of the Anglophone crisis.

The donation Ayuk said, would be extended to other divisions of the region viz; Fako, Ndian, Lebialem, Kupe-Muanueguba and Manyu.
