Speaking during the award ceremony in Enugu State, Mr Obiorah remarked, “I’m the happiest student alive, owing to the grant given to me by this foundation. My experience with the foundation so far is beyond my expectation. It has impacted my academics positively; knowing that this foundation is funding my school fees and accommodation, I’ve been trying my best to perform better as a student by reading harder so that I won’t disappoint the foundation and my family. The scholarship is the best thing to have happened as a student. I’m massively grateful. The type of hospitality given to me the day I went to the foundation’s office was top notch. I’m also grateful for the academic books I received. They are a terrific piece of literature written by His Lordship, Justice Innocent Azubike Umezulike, OFR.”
