Ezeunala Ekene Franklin, the best candidate for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, has been rewarded for his excellent result.
Ekene trended a few days ago after it emerged that the 15-year-old from Abia State scored 347 to emerge the best in this year’s examination.
Hijab Rights Advocacy Initiative decided to reward the teenage boy with a cash gift and have since taken to Twitter to make this know.

“We met Franklin the boy who scored highest in Jamb a student of Meiran Community High School. We gave him a cash gift to encourage him.”
Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the JAMB registrar, at a media briefing in Abuja, however, made it known that the best candidate may not be admitted into the University of Lagos (UNILAG), due to his age.
