Abia Gov Ikpeazu Rewards Teen With Scholarship For Being Honest...

Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, on Tuesday, rewarded a 15-year old boy, Chibuike Ibekwe, with scholarship and cash for his mother to improve her business.

Ibekwe, who had dropped out of school and resorted to scavenging at the Ariaria International Market, Aba assisted his poor mother, Mrs Chika Ibekwe, a petty roadside trader.

It was gathered that Chibuike, who hails from Mbano in Imo State, had received a bag containing brand new shoes to dispose, from one Mrs Goodness Uzoukwu, a trader in Ariaria, who deals in shoes and other wears,

However, when Chibuike got to where he disposes waste and discovered that the content of the bag given to him was not waste but goods, he returned the shoes to her, refusing to listen to those who wanted to buy them from him.

Mrs Uzoukwu, who was happy with the boy, rewarded him and posted the video on Facebook, thanking him for returning her goods.

Following the viral video, Governor Ikpeazu requested for a meeting with him saying that such honesty as displayed by the boy is what the society needs.

Gov Ikpeazu while receiving Ibekwe, his mother and Elder Emeka Igara, chairman of Ariaria International Market, at his residence in Umuobiakwa in Obingwa Local Government Area of the State, on Tuesday said; “Your name is Chibuike, and mine is Chibuike, too. I am happy you’ve proven to be very honest.

“Honest people go far in life. Those who do not take what does not belong to them are people that God helps and saves in their times of difficulty. Thank you for being honest and for not taking what did not belong to you. You will go far in life.

“Your today can’t decide your tomorrow because you are honest. You will go back to school. I will ensure you finish your secondary education because you are honest. If you remain honest, you will remain my friend and I will make sure you see me every month. What you have done by returning the goods to the owner is a mark of honor and proof of your honesty. Thank you, once again, Chibuike for being honest”, the Governor added.

  5. Dear Governor, please follow up on the promise, let it not be audio promise. I have personal experience of children promised scholarship by an ex governor. They never got a dime from the governor.

    Please fulfil your promise, governor that's the only way the youth learn that honesty really pays, if you disappoint him along with other disappointments he might face, that's what has hardened so many youths and pushed them into crime.

    God bless you as you fulfil this your promise governor.

  11. 'He will finish his secondary education," really?
    Governor, in some African countries that are poorer than Abia state, Elementary to secondary education is free.
    It is a shame that bright and honest kids are out of school in your state due to financial reasons.
    These kids shouldn't be turned to scavengers in their own country. 😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏

    Parents, instill values intentionally into your kids and pray they have a strong will to hold on to what is right when ocassion demands it.

    Poverty is not an excuse to steal, People steal because they are thieves.
