ARIK AIR STOWAWAY GETS SCHOLARSHIP

Edo State Governor Adams  has offered to grant Arik Air Stowaway boy DanIel Oikhena scholarship till University level.
The 13-year-old Benin boy who got nabbed by FAAN officials in Lagos last month after a 35-minute flight in the tyre compartment of  Arik airline from Benin to Lagos is now a national hero.
The Governor made this known in a press briefing in Benin On Friday September 13,2013.
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 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”, Oshiomhole noted. “This incident was probably the kind of trigger that we needed to improve the facilities at our Airports. ……
I guess Congratulations will be appropriate to Daniel.......
