Dr Chigozie Ekenze, the best graduating student at the 2016 combined convocation ceremony of Imo State University IMSU – has been given another reason to smile as the all academic expense, being Thirteen Million Seven Hundred Thousand Naira (13,700,000) has been released by governor Rochas Okorocha to enable him proceed for his Post Graduate Program in London immediately.
Dr Chigozie who lost his Father shortly after gaining admission to study Optometry in Imo State University was threatened to withdraw for lack of funding as his mother’s vegetable trade could not sponsor his education.
After becoming governor in 2011, Rochas Okorocha declared free and compulsory education from primary to university and that would rekindle the spark of greatness in the young Doctor to soar to greatness.
Yesterday, while receiving a cheque from Mrs Ugo Nneoma Rochas Okorocha,containing the huge sum, the doctor went on his kneels with utter gratitude to God. He continued to cry uncontrollably for several minutes with overwhelming joy from family and friends.
Recall, Governor Okorocha had earlier granted Dr Chigozie automatic employment as Lecturer in IMSU.
