Rivers Undergraduate Receives Scholarship And #200,000 For His Honesty

A 100-level undergraduate of the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education in Rivers State, Ami Ugochukwu, has been awarded a four-year comprehensive scholarship, N200,000 upkeep allowance and an award of excellence for his honesty and good conduct.

It was learnt that the student distinguished himself after returning a lost phone he found, which belonged to worker of the institution at a restaurant on the campus and returned it without demanding any reward.

Surprised by Ugochukwu’s honesty, the owner of the phone, who is a lecturer and the Director, Ideas, Creativity and Innovation, Dr Patience Spenser, introduced him to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ozo-Mekuri Ndimele, who decided to reward him for his honesty.

Handing over the prizes to the 19-year-old student, the vice-chancellor said the move was aimed at encouraging honesty among students.

Ndimele said, “We want to pass a message to the public, especially our students, that it pays to be of good conduct; there is always a reward for hard work, integrity and sincerity; we just want to set an example and show them that if they behave well, they will be rewarded.

“We are here for our students; we love them and we’ll reward those who behave well. Today, we rewarded a student, who found a mobile phone and returned it to the owner even though he had no phone himself.

“We rewarded the student with a four-year comprehensive scholarship to look after his fees and other levies; a small amount of money for his upkeep, while he continues his schooling here; we also gave him a certificate of honour so that wherever he goes in the world, he can showcase himself as the best behaved student for the year 2019/2020.”

Ugochukwu appreciated the university management for the honour bestowed on him and advised his fellow students to always behave well.
