Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State yesterday at the chambers of the State Executive Council (EXCO) honoured another indigene of the state, a 16-year-old student of Doiiiiwen College, Lagos, Miss Nnenna Eneh, who scored A1 in all the nine subjects she sat for in the 2017 West African Examinations Council (WAEC) examination.

It would be recalled that the Enugu State Government had recently honoured Miss Cynthia Chinecherem Ali, the best graduating student of Shalom Academy Nsukka in 2017, who had the same result in recognition of her outstanding academic performance.

Addressing journalists after the meeting with members of the State Executive Council, the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Uchenna Eze, who was accompanied by his counterpart in the Ministry of Information, Mr. Ogbuagu Anikwe, and the student’s father, Mr. Fidelis Eneh, said that Gov. Ugwuanyi expressed delight at the brilliant performance of Miss Eneh, adding that the state government was thrilled by the number of its indigenes that are “doing wonderfully well” in academics.

The commissioner disclosed that the state government honoured her with a cash gift and certificate of recognition as an ambassador of Enugu State, stating that the gesture will motivate her further to do better in her future endeavours, as well as spur other young ones to work harder.

“With this kind of brilliant performance, we believe that the sky will be her limit and we are praying that other young ones will emulate her, as hard work is the only road to this kind of achievement. The EXCO approved a cash award and there will be a certificate of honour bearing His Excellency’s seal,” Prof. Eze said.

Responding, Miss Eneh, who was represented by her father, said she was “extremely delighted with the honour by His Excellency and the EXCO”, and thanked the governor for his commitment towards qualitative and affordable education in the state.

Mr. Eneh, regretted the absence of his daughter at the event, explaining that she would have loved to be present to personally receive the award but had travelled out of the country to further her education.

“Your Excellency, you invited me her in view of my daughter’s performance. I hope she would have been here by herself. That would have made her day. A few minutes ago I was reading something somebody was commenting on His Excellency’s commitment to education.

“Incidentally, if this is the only thing the girl will be associated with, His Excellency’s directive here has made her vision a reality and I sincerely thank the governor on behalf of the young girl for this gesture,” the student’s father said.
