The overall best candidates of 2019 West African Examination Council have been awarded scholarship by Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha.
Meanwhile, the best WAEC candidates are Imo State born Chizoba Ugbaja and Favour Chukwuemeka Alozie.
However, Chizoba and Favour got scholarship to university level from Imo state government.
Ironically, both 1st and 2nd best 2019 WASSCE candidates are not only from Nigeria, but from same Mbaise in Imo state.
Furthermore, the two children, are from two (sister) Local Government Areas in Mbaise.
Chizobam Ugboaja is from Akpodim Ezinihitte Mbaise LGA.
Both Chizobam and Alozie made ‘A1’ grades in all the subjects the sat for in the 2019 WASSCE.
However, while Chizobam came first, Alozie came second.
Ihedioha awarded full academic scholarship to university to the two.
Furthermore, Stephany and Favor’s recognition by the governor serves as a motivator to all Imo students.
