Chinecherem Cynthia Ali, who finished from Shalom Academy, Nsukka, Enugu state, made all A’s in the just released West African Examination Council (WAEC) results and has been rewarded for her academic exploits by the Enugu State government.
According to reports, Chinecherem was today awarded full scholarship by the Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to study in any school of her choice.
The good news was disclosed by Chibulu Austin on his facebook page:
“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 remarks, Governor Ugwuanyi praised Cynthia’s achievement, tagging her exploits as a morale booster for other students and other individuals as well.
“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.
We also celebrate this success of Cynthia and we wish her well.
