2018 UTME Best Candidate Gets Scholarship from Borno State Governor


Galadima Israel Zakari, who was announced as the best candidate for 2018 UTME with a score of 364, has been awarded a scholarship by Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima.

Zakari and his mother, Jummai , were hosted by the Governor on Tuesday in his office in Maiduguri. The Governor stated how proud he was of Zakari’s feat and directed the Commissioner for Education to raise a 5million cheque for upfront payment of tuition, accommodation, books and maintenance for the five years he will be spending at Covenant University.

Zakari recently gained admission to Covenant University to study Electronics Engineering. Hopefully, the Governor’s action will motivate other youths to study hard and aim to be the best.
