See How A Simple Text Message Earned A Nigerian Guy Scholarship Up To PhD Level - GIST

Last Sunday, Paul Chidozie, 26, an undergraduate of Geology, University of Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, bagged a PhD scholarship following a text message he sent to the Leader, Enugu State House of Assembly, Ikechukwu Ezugwu.

For the past 3 years, Ezugwu has been marking his birthday with the award of scholarships to undergraduates from each of the 10 wards in Udenu LGA. It was like the Biblical lesson where Jesus Christ treated 10 lepers but only one person went back to thank him.

Tears of joy rolled down on Ezugwu’s chicks with nostalgia, that out of 20 persons who benefitted from the yearly scholarship scheme, only Chiedozie deemed it fit to come back to show appreciation and wish him many happy returns on his birthday.

Ezugwu said: “Out of the undergraduates that have been receiving this, Chiedozie was the only one who remembered to wish me well on my birthday.

I was so touched emotionally and that singular gesture has earned him a full scholarship to PhD level.

Even if am not alive (G** forbid) the machinery to ensure that he studied to PhD level has been put in place.”

This year, the 20 benefiting students received N50,000 each, bringing the total amount to N2 million.

The remaining former recipients however claimed that they also wanted to send text messages but there was no light to charge their phones
