STORY: Despite scars, Man attains a Bachelor’s Degree from FUTA

A Nigerian man by the name Great Nkor has risen beyond all odds to bag Bachelor’s Degree from the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA).

Great Nkor got the scars when he was a kid as a result of a fire accident he was involved in, from which he suffered lots of injuries.

He had to go through 17 surgeries in South Africa which were all sponsored by MTN.

After the fire incident which left a series of scars on him including his face, the young Nigerian man suffered several mental stress as a result of his looks coupled with the financial setbacks of his parent.

In 2009, MTN contacted his parent, expressing their desire to support him through several surgeries and educational support. Great Nkor was eventually flown out of the country where he had about 17 surgeries fully sponsored by MTN.

The telecom giants award scholarships yearly to Nigerian Undergraduates, supporting every chosen undergraduate with a sum of N200,000 annually until graduation. The Scholarship Award for this year was announced earlier in the month of July and was closed in August
