Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has supported a 1st class graduate of the University of Ilorin, Olaniyan Damilola Yusuf, with the sum of £10,000 (N5,006,000) for his Masters oversees.
Olaniyan, a young, hardworking and intelligent orphan from Kwara State was awarded a 50% scholarship to pursue a Masters in Education at the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom.
As a young public school teacher, it was difficult for Olaniyan to raise the remaining 50% tuition fees which is to the tune of £10,000.
To surmount the financial constraint before him, Olaniyan launched a crowdfund which didn’t yield much dividend.

Fortune, however, smiled on him when he was able to get through to Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq after 2 months of trying.
Governor AbdulRazaq who has always been passionate about human capacity development awarded Yusuf the outstanding 50% (£10,000). Thereby, fulfilling his desire to be a harbinger of knowledge to the younger generation.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, September 17, 2020, the management of Teach for Nigeria thanked the governor for making Yusuf’s dream a reality.
Olaniyan joined Teach For Nigeria as a Fellow and taught in a public school in Ogun state for 2 years before he was awarded the scholarship.
He is billed to resume at the University of Nottingham on 21st September.
