Enugu Governor’s Wife’s Scholarship Beneficiaries Offer Thanksgiving by OEPHIUS(m): 4:40pm On Sep 10
Over 100 beneficiaries of the Scholarship Scheme of Wife of Enugu State Governor, Mrs. Monica Ugochi Ugwuanyi, yesterday, joined women of the state at their monthly Prayer rally to offer prayers for the state.



The beneficiaries, who are mostly indigent, used the opportunity to express gratitude to God for giving Enugu State a benevolent, visionary and God-fearing Governor, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and using his wife, Monica, to wipe away their tears by granting them free education through scholarships.



Speaking at the event, one of the earlier beneficiaries of the scheme, which commenced three years ago, Miss Winifred Maduko, a first class graduate, stated that Mrs. Ugwuanyi’s gesture has enabled her to meet her educational need in spite of her poor background.



Miss Maduko disclosed that the scholarship scheme, tagged “Project 102”, has offered scholarship to 105 candidates since it commenced in 2016.



Emphasizing the role education plays in the alleviation of poverty, Miss Maduko, on behalf of other beneficiaries, commended Mrs. Ugwuanyi for her philanthropic disposition.



In her prayers, another beneficiary who is physically challenged, Aba Chigozie, also appreciated Mrs. Ugwuanyi, saying: "I want to thank God for what our Mummy, Her Excellency, Mrs. Monica Ugwuanyi, has done in our life. On behalf of my colleagues, I am praying that God will bless her and our governor. They will never lack and God will continue to replenish their pockets in Jesus name".



In her speech, Mrs. Ugwuanyi disclosed that the scholarship scheme was born out of her passion to assist the indigent people of the state to realize their lofty dreams.



She pointed out that the selection of the beneficiaries were devoid of any political or class inclination, adding that her motive, which is purely on humanitarian ground, is to ensure that the poorest in the society are given a new lease of life.



Explaining how this scheme came about, Mrs. Ugwuanyi said: “We came into the villages during school hours and saw children out of schools. We started asking questions and were told that they were out of schools. It is true that in Enugu state, education is free at least to basic level but there are certain fees to be paid. We provided uniforms, sandals, bags, books and other writing materials".



She therefore enjoined the people to be selfless and extend helping hands to the needy to make the world a better place.



The event also featured raffle draw where the winners went home with washing machine, blender, grinding machine, cooker, while some people were equally empowered with some items to start business.

And my comment was deleted. Proved my point that this was a paid advertisement.

Like I said in that comment, alot of projects needs urgent attention in the state. The projects when completed will do the praise singing on its own.

More showmanship style of governing.

Line them up, show them recieving the gifts, photograph it and put it out there so all can see that we did it.

This isn't what I expect from government.

Evidence of a useless government!

As someone up there said, line them up, take photos, post on every platform for the world ro see....thats how you know a totally “more showoff, less work” government.

And just look at how the women stood straight at attention like soldiers. Chai! See citizens wey no know their right hand from left hand.

If these people knew how much that crying-idiot called the governor of Enugu is stealing from them, they would have been on the streets protesting and calling for better governance but alas they are foolishly lining up to collect peanuts to feed their children while the governor sends his children to the best schools in the U.S and U.K.

Nigerians una deserve every ounce of the useless and meaningless government you get from your political elites. After Buhari, una go still vote in some idiot wey go continue with the nonsense wey Buhari dey do wey e call governance.

More sufferings fall on Nigerians for their stupidity!

Tells you that the political elites know fully well that a vast majority of the Nigerian populace are foolish and stupid as such any useless program would fly and no one would ask any questions.

What a useless set of citizens!!
