China gifts 50 ABU students N5 million

Fifty students of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, have been rewarded with N5 million by the Chinese embassy for their outstanding academic performance.

The ambassador of China to Nigeria, Cui Jianchun, presented the awards to the students on Wednesday during a virtual ceremony.

“Because China’s National Day and Nigeria’s Independence Day are celebrated on the same day, October 1, the Chinese Embassy picked the date as a day for celebrating China-Nigeria friendship to reward excellent students in chosen universities, and ABU is certainly one of them.

“In my eyes, Ahmadu Bello University is one of the best universities in Nigeria. We are very proud to say that the Chinese embassy has a long, good relationship with ABU.

“So it’s my great pleasure to present the scholarship award to 50 excellent ABU students,” Mr Cui said.

The vice-chancellor of ABU, Kabiru Bala, expressed appreciation to the Chinese government and the embassy for their support.

  1. This is whatvNugeria has been reduced to. It is no longer 5bn but 5m. I weep for this country. China knows every little thing is big to Nigeria that is why they gave such an insulting money
