The Management of the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education (IAUE) has elected Mr Ami Victor Ugochukwu, a 100-level student of Political Science as IAUE student of the year 2020.
The student won the title after he picked and returned a smartphone worth thousands of naira to the owner. What is special about this is that he (Ugochukwu) has no phone – not even a “torchlight” phone.
The Management of the institution commended this rare conduct of the student, even as the Vice-Chancellor reiterated that IAUE celebrates excellence.
The award attracts the following from the University:
1. A certificate of honour
2. Four years comprehensive scholarship – covering school fees and little for his upkeep while in school
3. A Cheque from the University to refund him his year one fee already paid
4. His photograph will be displayed on the University’s Electronic Billboard of Excellence for 6 months
Mr Ugochukwu has also received numerous gifts and pledges from some individuals who learnt about this rare conduct.
