Teenage Stowaway Boy Gets Scholarship From Edo State Governor

I’m sure by now, Daniel Oikhena (pictured centre) further needs no introduction. Anyway  for those who don’t know, he is the teenager who flew in the tire compartment of an Arik flight from Benin to Lagos with the intention of landing in America-The land of dreams. Unfortunately our fellow superboy landed in Lagos-The land of wisdom. Daniel and the Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, George Uriesi (pictured right) paid a courtesy visit to Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole yesterday Wednesday Sept. 11th.

Governor Oshiomhole said the government will support Daniel by sending him to one of the top schools in the state. He said:
“Without meaning to encourage anyone else, we decided to support him by sending him to one of the top secondary schools in Edo State that is owned by the Government. The reason for opting for a boarding school is that we think that there is need to closely watch him which his parents could not do. He is an intelligent young man with uncommon challenges, but one that has a vision. We had him examined by people who should know and the result confirmed that he is normal"

Many ways to shoot to fame and fortune…..
