A Nigerian who resides in Canada has secured an international passport for 52 Nigerian students who want to relocate abroad.
Dr. Olumuyiwa Igbalajobi who used the kind gesture to celebrate his birthday said he received 1,115 applications from Nigerians within 5 hours.
According to Dr. Olumuyiwa, the aim is to help students who need travel documents but who lack the money to pay for it.
“Based on my conversation with most scholarship enthusiasts, the inability to process their Nigerian E-Passport due to financial constraint often discouraged them from applying for numerous scholarship and funding opportunities.
“With the support of my friends, I raised the total sum of 1.8 million Naira to support 52 highly qualified prospective graduate school applicants to pay for their Nigerian-E passports. It is worthy to note that I receive a total of 1,115 applications within 5h for the funding.
“Inclusion for me is setting up a conducive ecosystem where everyone can grow, be heard, and be respected. In the last year, we have provided mentoring to over 30,000 highly qualified prospective undergraduate and graduate students and applicants for postdoctoral positions via virtual seminars and webinars, review of application packages such as curriculum vitae, statement of purpose e.t.c. resulting in more than 5,000 successful applications worth >$1 million,” Dr. Olumuyiwa disclosed.
