    This is a wonderful thing NNPC and TOTAL does for students in tertiary institutions. Scholarships are well needed in encouraging excellent endevours in academics.
    Though the scholarships reaches both the well off and the less privilege, it’s up to the less privilege to work twice as hard to be the majority that obtain the scholarship.
