In his reaction while announcing the payment of the scholarship award for the students, the IGAHAF board chairman, Ichie Aguowo commended the students and CKC Onitsha for bringing honour to Nigeria. He said the scholarship award to the students is to reward merit and to encourage other young Nigerians to put in their best so they will excel. Chief Aguowo said Nigeria has so much quality in it and the country will be better for it if many more of such news of excellence from Nigeria is heard all over the world.
