“This gesture is to acknowledge merit and to especially encourage girl-child education in our state”, the governor maintained, pointing out that the state government is making arrangements to ensure that gifted children are given opportunity to fully exploit their potentials.

According to the governor, “we are happy that this child has performed very well and I want to assure that we will continue to encourage our people to achieve in their chosen endeavors and bring honor to their families , the state and the nation at large”.

  1. Wow! She did well. Greater and higher heights she will go.

  2. Is this suppose to be news?...
    Is that not what the governor is suppose to do?...

  3. Nice one ..... But i won't celebrate this mediocre

  4. This girl's family should be wise in this and go for any university they can afford in case the govt fails to fulfill their promise along the line. Ganduje may leave and another gov might stop funding it. I heard that the students on scholarship in China by the same govt are suffering there.
    Anyway he tried.

  5. Congratulations to be briliant students......wish you all success in your education....
