Scholarship: Zulum Releases N5m On Boy Who Copy-Designed Maiduguri Flyover

A cheque of N5m approved by Gov. Babagana Zulum of Borno has been presented to a private school to fund a scholarship for Musa Sani, a 13-year old talented Borno kid who used mud to replicate the state’s first flyover in Maiduguri.

The payment was made to Golden Olive Academy, Maiduguri, to cater for Musa’s education from primary four to completion of Senior Secondary School.

Musa was born into a less privileged family living around Gwange area in Maiduguri.

He was a primary three pupil at a Community school
in Gwange.

Musa recently caught Zulum’s attention when he used mud to design a flyover that was commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari in Maiduguri, back in December.

Governor Zulum was amazed by the kid’s brilliance. He met his family and offered to approve scholarship for him, to harness his talents.

The Governor directed the Borno State Education Trust Fund (ETF) to fund the boy’s education.

Chairperson of ETF Prof. Hauwa Biu, presented a cheque of Five Million and Twenty Nine Thousand Naira (N5,029,000), with the fund already paid to a private school at which Musa is now schooling.

Prof Biu thanked Governor Zulum for the offer and urged the boy to focus on his studies and make the Governor proud.
