17-Years-Old Girl Who Trended Online For Repairing Heavy Vehicle Forklift Gets FG's Scholariship (Photos)

IgbereTV reports that the Federal Government has promised to sponsor a 17-years-old girl, Popoopla Esther who went viral on the internet on Saturday, July 25, for repairing a forklift.

A Twitter user @ThepreciousAda who said her dad saw the girl at work posted in a series of tweets:

"My dad saw this talented girl at work today repairing a forklift at 17 years old, she wants to study engineering and grow her expertise. He asked me to post this video so she could get some sort of assistance or guidance."

"Her name is popoola Kehinde Esther, this is Classic Bonded Terminal, Okota where she works under Mr Adebayo Maruf. I will be sharing her contact only with trusted parties.. Thank you all so much for the retweets, it has gotten a lot of recognition."

Later on, the Nigerian federal government through the minister of youth and sports, Sunday Dare, on Monday, July 27, said the federal government will give her a scholarship. Sunday asked @ThepreciousAda to quickly share her contact details for the facilitation of the scholarship.

Below is his tweet confirming it:

"This is HM Youth and Sports. Please send her name and number. We will get her a scholarship."

Yes, that is how it should be.

Anything you do, do it with genuine interest and God will come to your aid.

Unlike some idiots who will join some metals or woods together, then his fellow idiots take pictures/videos, upload same on social media and start screaming "rare talent", "Nigerians are genius", "govt should come to his aid" etc.

Imagine one idiot "invented water generator", another one "invented burner that uses feaces" and illiterates started screaming Buhari should come to his aid. undecided

Popoopla Esther, you really make your people and indeed Nigerians proud. Hopefully, this scholarship doesn't turn out to be audio. Because I recall this is the same ministry that promised 10k monthly stipends to the mother of the football legend, Rashidi Yekini, but failed. undecided

Edited.

For that one asking me if govt actually looked at the burner that uses feaces, pls note biogas is not a new concept. The problem with it is just efficiency, which is very low.

Kudos, girl! Your mom and dad should be proud of you!
If this type comes out and says she's a feminist I'll listen. Not all these smelly-pant gold-diggers looking for rich men and male celebrities to accuse of rape, with their jobless, olosho asslickers on Nairaland.

The only thing which is wrong with the picture remains her attire for the job. She should have worn a denim bib and metal toe leather boot. I have already fallen in love with this young girl. A fallen wrench can cut off a toe. Why Nigerians are always try to throw paper academia to professional session?

Goodness @ someone of different Govt. sector speak out for the young skilled. Hope the proper administration send her a scholarship asap.
Nice one Honorable Minister Sir, may your days be long.
The dilettante up their should note their is no level education cannot take you. Yes she needs to be drilled in theoretical basis and thesis of being an engineer.
We embrace to study in other to acquire knowledge. Thank you
Finally my observation also reads she is energetic with a good body build that suits a proper stamina. She can be transformed to a superstar by giving her training in Nigerian under 21 Female national team. She maybe the new Amokachie or Ikpeba. grin

Good News.
This is the type of people govt and organisations should invest on. Not the useless brainless oloshos in Big Brother Naija that they are dashing millions for doing nothing but promiscuity.

1 question: did govt actually do a deep dive to find out if the acts were true?
Believe it or not using gases from feacal decays which are mainly methane, butane, etc isn't new; a lecturer from UNIZIK designed it years ago & it was working.
Oga most scientific magics you see today started off as a rugged or even serendipitous raw materials but we're developed to the stage where they are right now.
This is a good deed by Beautiful Miss Esther born out of hardwork likewise the other of feacal gas which could save many villages & poor people and help recycle wastes

Mr seer. Nothing is wrong there as far you haven't grant her interview to ascertain the reason. Sometimes, nature calls for a breach of rule to meet up certain or urgent demand at a particular time you know nothing about. If truly you are a seer, tell us what she did throughout that day? Who owns the forklift? What made her put on the alleged attire?

lipsrsealed Ehe they have arrived, about time.
Stupid government that craves publicity all the time like an upcoming artistes or a "philanthropist" planning on joining politics.
How many Nigerians have been given scholarships? How many Nigerians need it, but this is currently the most pressing need of the country at the moment, because she trended.
Always looking for the next trending needy person to rush in and "help" and then receive adulations as a government that cares.
Look at our police for instance,a woman will get raped and report to the police station and they will simply dismiss her, some will even beg you to forgive the rapist and forget the case, but once the case hits Twitter and Facebook and starts trending like fire you'll immediately see them running around like fools, arresting suspects and parading them before cameras, claiming active and competent.
That's also how they threat every other case.
Funny enough it's their incompetence and failure in the first place that's putting Nigerians in those vulnerable and pathetic conditions they love to prey on.

Kudos to the girl tho,I have nothing but respect and admiration for you. As a so called Engineering student, I know how many of us that can even identify a spanner.
