A cheque of N5m approved by Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum has been presented to a private school to fund a scholarship for Musa Sani, a 13-year old talented Borno kid, who used mud to replicate the state’s first flyover around the customs round-about in Maiduguri.

The payment was made to Golden Olive Academy, Maiduguri, to cater for Musa’s education from primary four to the completion of Senior Secondary School.

Musa was born into a less privileged family, living around Gwange area in Maiduguri.
He was a primary three pupil at a Community school in Gwange.

Musa recently caught Zulum’s attention when he used mud to design a flyover that was commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari in Maiduguri, back in December.
