The Law Faculty of the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus, extended its appreciation to Rt. Hon. Ikechukwu Ezeugwu, founder of the Ikechukwu Ezeugwu Foundation, during a Thank You visit to the foundation’s headquarters in Enugu. The visit was organized to, among other things, join a recent graduate, Miss Malinda Itanyi, who had successfully completed her LL.B law degree through the foundation’s scholarship program to appreciate Hon Ezeugwu and his team.
In his address, Comr. Ezeugwu Chibuzor, President of the Law Faculty, expressed his gratitude on behalf of the entire faculty. He acknowledged Hon. Ikechukwu Ezeugwu’s unwavering dedication to the youth and his notable contribution to education.
Comrade Chibuzor emphasized, “On behalf of the faculty of law, University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus, we are here to say a big thank you for one of us, Miss Malinda Itanyi from Igbo-Etiti local government area who has just graduated with an LL.B law degree through the scholarship opportunity from your foundation.”
He continued, “There is no other way to extend our appreciation rather than to visit you at your foundation today to celebrate her as a beneficiary and a fresh graduate. We wish to thank you and encourage you to continue the good work.”
Miss Malinda Itanyi, the beneficiary of the foundation’s scholarship, expressed her profound gratitude in her vote of thanks. She expressed, “Thank you, Honourable Ezeugwu, our Daddy, for offering me the opportunity to be a law graduate today. Your generosity amazes me; you gave me the scholarship, which I did not deserve. I would have been in a real bind without your scholarship intervention. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to you, your entire team in the Foundation , and everyone who has played a role in helping me achieve this bachelor’s degree in law.”
In response to questions from the media about his criteria for the selection of a beneficiary from Igbo-Etiti local government, outside his constituency, Hon. Ezeugwu recounted his interaction with a known face in the political circle in Enugu State named Ngozi Itanyi, often referred to as “The London Baby,” who is always actively involved in various political and social functions everywhere, every time. In the course of discussing with her at one of such occasions, he learned that her daughter, Malinda, had gained admission to study law at UNN.
“I told her that to reward her for being politically active and a friend to all, I will include her daughter as one of my scholarship beneficiaries,” Hon. Ezeugwu stated. He concluded, “I am glad that today, Malinda is a holder of the law degree, and to God be the glory.”
The visit to the Ikechukwu Ezeugwu Foundation headquarters by the law faculty members was a testament to the impact of the Foundation’s scholarship program on the lives of young students, and it highlighted the importance of philanthropy in education.
