UNIBEN undergraduate gets scholarship for returning wallet filled with money
Philip Okafor who was said to be owing an outstanding school fee of N45,600 was going through a hard time in school when he came across the wallet on the school’s premises.
According to reports, the 200 level student of Microbiology in the Faculty of Life Sciences in the institution returned the wallet to the owner who was also another 200 level student of the Environmental Management and Toxicology Department in the same faculty.
The grateful owner whose name is yet to be identified informed the Dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences, Professor Jerry Orhue, about what Okafor had done. For his exemplary behavior, Okafor was given a special prize, which was conferred on him by Professor Jerry Orhue.
Professor Orhue commended Okafor for returning the wallet despite knowing that the money contained in the wallet was enough to cater to his school fees.
Professor Orhue said that Okafor’s outstanding school fees for the semester and subsequent ones till he completes his undergraduate program have been totally waived.
He has received his letter of award and the Faculty has since paid his outstanding school charges for his integrity.
