Edo State governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has congratulated the 47 Edo indigenes, who benefited from the Chinese Government Scholarship, urging them to serve as inspiration to many others in the state to strive for academic excellence.
In a statement by special adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, the governor said that the feat would not only serve as confidence booster for the beneficiaries but would also offer a glimmer of hope to other indigenes of the state to strive hard for success.
The Chinese government recently awarded scholarships to 47 indigenes of the state, drawn from the University of Benin, Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma and Edo University, Iyamho, in an effort to support human capital development and strengthen ties with the state government. The scholarship was presented on behalf of the Chinese government by the country’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Zhou Pingjian.
According to the governor, “We are proud that 47 of our sons and daughters are beneficiaries of the Chinese Government Scholarship. I believe this will go a long way in easing their educational pursuit and assuring them that indeed, hard work does pay.
“It also serves to motivate others to be the best at what they do, be the leading light in their chosen fields of study and rise above all encumbrance to excel. This is with the assurance that one day their hard work will pay off, as has happened to these 47 students.”
He noted that the scholarship is another milestone in the rosy relationship between the state government and the Chinese government, adding that the continued mutually beneficial relationship has set the state on a path of industrialisation.
He said, “We have a had a robust relationship with the Chinese government, businesses and its people. The institution of the scholarship will go a long way in endearing the Chinese government to the hardworking people of Edo State.”

Former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, weekend in Yenagoa celebrated his 54th birthday party, predicting that the All Progressives Congress (APC)  will emerge victorious at the State, National Assembly and the Presidential elections.

Timipre Sylva, while speaking during the birthday celebration, noted that a bigger celebration will be held on the state after the APC record successes during state and national elections.
According to him, the APC will record majority at the Bayelsa State and National Aseembly elections, “In December, so many things will happen here in Bayelsa. The people have suffered too much. The people have tried with the poverty forced on them. But you are not poor people because the Lord has blessed us abundantly. So in December, we will have a huge party of all.
“By this time next year, we would elected our Senators. By this time next year, we would have elected Members of House of Representatives, and this time next year, we have elected majority of our candidates into the State House of Assembly. Enough of the suffering and let us bring life back to Bayelsa and bring money to the residents of the state.”
