Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has awarded Chinecherem Cynthia Ali full academic scholarship to study in any school of her choice.

Chinecherem ,who was  a student of Shalom Academy, Nsukka, Enugu state, made all A’s in the just released West African Examination Council (WAEC) results.

This was disclosed by Chibulu Austin on his Facebook.

“Thanks to Erochukwu Ugwueze Hon Ethel Ugwuanyi Chibulu Austin Victor Oluchukwu Samuel Ugwu and all who made it possible.

Remember I made a post not long ago about how she made 9A1 in her Waec and also my encounter with her when I visited her school to appreciate her on behalf of my friend who donated to her.

We will keep celebrating excellence and hard work. Enugu Is Truly In The Hands Of God.”

In his remark by Governor Ugwuanyi called on students in the state to our children to see Cynthia’s achievement as a morale booster that will spur them to higher heights of achievement

“I was excited beyond measure when news got to me that a young girl from our dear State made A1 in all her subjects at the last West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations,” he said.

I was excited because as a leader of the people, our vision has been to lay the foundations that does not just encourage but also rewards excellence across all spheres of endeavour.

Cynthia Ali has in no small measure made the entire state proud and her achievement is a demonstration of how our dear state can become great again with exemplary performances such as hers. And I am convinced that what she has done will become a shining beacon of examples that those coming behind her can copy and in the process lift their families, the entire state and the nation.

As a measure of how happy our Government is about the achievement, the State Executive Council (EXCO) at the hallowed Chambers of the Council invited her for commendation. The Commissioner for Education, Prof Uchenna Eze, who spoke on our behalf made it clear how excited we were about what she was able to achieve and offered her a university scholarship.

I have always made clear the determination of my Government to not only reward excellence, but also to create the environment necessary for our young minds to express fully and maximise opportunities that will enable the state become a haven for competent manpower.

As a government, we will continue to invest in education. We are aware that nothing liberates a society more than education.

It is on this note that I call on all our children in public and private institutions of learning to see Cynthia’s achievement as a morale booster that will spur them to higher heights of achievement.

I congratulate this our young daughter and my prayer and wish is for more of our children to emulate her example. I also call on all citizens of the State to continue on the path of hardwork and excellence.

In the end, only hardwork and excellence provides enduring reward’.
