Stephany Chizobam Ugboaja and Favor Alozie, who both scored ‘A1’ in all subjects in the 2019 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) have been rewarded.
Emeka Ihedioha, governor of Imo, on Wednesday, awarded them full academic scholarship to study in any university of their choice.
Aic Akwarandu, special assistant to the governor on new media, in a statement, quoted Ihedioha as expressing excitement at the feat.
“The gesture of sponsoring the students in any university of their choice in the country is a celebration of excellence and hard work”, he said.
“The plan of the Ihedioha’s government is to ensure that we give the best to our state and reward excellence and hard work.
“We believe Stephany and Favor’s recognition by the governor would serve as morale booster to Imo students and will spur them to higher heights of achievements in years to come.”
Meanwhile, former minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili, has showered praise on Ugboaja.
She tweeted: “Chizobam Ugboaja who scored a perfect WASCE result is simply a queen!
“I am immensely proud of this young woman who is a role model and an inspiration for educating the #GirlChild.
“Her light shall surely shine brighter throughout her journey of life. Rooting for you all the way”.
