A student of Political Science Department, Ignatus Ajuru University of Education, Rumuolumeni, Port Harcourt, Ami Victor Ugochukwu has been awarded with four years scholarship for being of high integrity and honesty by returning a smart phone belonging to a Lecturer of the Institution.
Ami Victor Ugochukwu, a year one student who had no phone, had last year picked a smart phone and instead of converting it to his personal use decided to give it back to the owner, who unknown to him was a Lecturer in the institution.
Speaking while honouring Ami Victor Ugochukwu, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Ozo-Mekuri Ndimele stated that the student by his singular act, haD made the institution and indeed Rivers State proud, for proving that there were still honest people in society who hold their integrity very high notwithstanding the bad economic situation in country.
In her speech, the Registrar, Mrs Hope Kue-Ikoro said an additional two hundred thousand Naira would be given to him for his upkeep while in school.
Responding, Ami Victor Ugochukwu lauded the school for giving him the scholarship and called on the youths and Nigerians to exhibit good character anywhere they find themselves, noting that there is nothing comparable to integrity.
Radio Rivers Correspondent Alexander Wikina quotes the mother, Mrs Patience Ami as thanking God and the school authority for the award of scholarship to her son, saying this will enable him pursue his education with ease.
