A 13 Year Old boy currently in primary 4 has received a cheque of 5 million naira to complete his education from his current class to senior secondary school three (SS3).
The scholarship was paid to the school he currently attends ( a community school in Gwange area of the metropolis) by the Governor of Borno State, Babagana Umara Zulum.
The young boy caught the attention of the Governor after he used mud to build a miniature of the state’s first flyover situated in the Customs area of Maiduguri that was commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari in December, 2021.
Governor Zulum was amazed by the pupil’s brilliance and met his family and offered to give him scholarship to harness his talents and directed the state’s Education Trust Fund (ETF) to fund the boy’s education.
The Chairperson of ETF in the state, Prof Hauwa Biu, presented a cheque of N5,029,000 to Golden Olive Academy where Musa is now schooling, while urging the boy to focus on his studies and make the governor proud.
