A student of Kogi State Origin, Miss Fatima BomBom Sani, who emerged the best graduating student at the 2015 Call to Bar examination of the Nigerian Law School has been granted a scholarship to the tune of Thirty-three million five hundred seventy-three thousand naira, by the executive governor of Kogi state, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
This was made known last weekend, at the award ceremony at Government House Kogi state where the Governor Lamented the Lack of appreciation for Academic Excellence in modern day Nigeria.
He said: “The case of Fatima Sani reminds me of how academic excellence has not been adequately rewarded in Nigeria. Imagine someone that bagged nine separate awards including Best Student of the Year and Council of Education Star Award, and nothing was done for her since 2015.”
Talking to Fatima:
“I heard about your exceptional performance at the Nigerian Law School in 2015 and assumed you were recognized and sponsored by the administration of the day. It’s unacceptable that such brilliance is not celebrated and promoted.
“Nevertheless, now that your genuine self is before me, I shall grant you a personal scholarship to celebrate your exceptionalism and help your career-defining goals,” the governor said.
