The Senator representing Oyo Central senatorial district, Sen. Monsurat Sunmonu, has announced that yet another of her constituents has been sponsored on a fully funded masters scholarship to the People’s Republic of China.
On Sunday, Sunmonu bid farewell to Aliu Omotayo, the most recent beneficiary of the programme as he departed Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos for Beijing China.
Omotayo, a first class graduate of University of Ilorin, is to study for a Masters in Business Administration at the Beijing Normal University, China. His scholarship includes travel, tuition, accommodation, stipends and comprehensive medical insurance.
In an appreciation letter to received by Sunmonu, Aliu said “I am not a politician nor do I know any, but as a constituent I just tried with much skepticism yet you cleared my doubts. Throughout the application process, I never met you or have any sort of discussions with you yet you gave me unwavering support.”
The former Oyo State Speaker in June welcomed back to Nigeria one of the previous beneficiaries of the scholarship programme, Azeez Olayemi, who graduated this year (2018) from the Wuhan University of Technology with a Distinction in his Masters in Economics.
