Teenage stowaway, Daniel Oikhena, offered scholarship

A group called De Raufs' Volunteer Group - a group of supporters of Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola, has offered 14 year old Daniel Oikhena, the boy who flew an Arik plane from Benin to Lagos hidden in the plane's undercarriage, a scholarship.

The Director-General of the group, Amitolu Shittu, in a statement released yesterday said the group is ready to give scholarship to Daniel up to university level and also help him achieve his target of travelling through the air.

Much as this is good to hear, I hope it wouldn't call for other teenagers to delve into such risky stunts in a bid to get a scholarship or whatever is there to offer on the long run.

Naija!!!! Hard Knock Life!

Better thinking now. They should better capitalize on his intelligence.

This is rubbish. It sends a wrong message to teenagers like himself. That in itself has to be some sort of offence, now he's being rewarded with a scholarship.

Well that's a gud one.
But the organization its coming from is my prob;what happens when Rauf aregbesola is no more gov?how sure are we they can keep to their promise?
This is just a political group seeking recognition thru the lil boy's predicament.

just hope other boys dont try sumtin as risky as this, coz it might not work out for them like it did for this boy.

Hahahaha too funny! U said it all, very wise boy

I PRAY GOD ALMIGHTY THAT THIS GUY SHOULD BE A PILOT. I actually suspect that....This brings out a lot of message to the Aviation industry as well as the NIGERIAN ARMY...Step up your game somehow...This is Confidence, determination.

ada ada said...

Hope they don't. But really if they all do and succeed then good. At least for once nigerian money will be going to tangible things. Training the leaders of tomorrow.
Don't get me wrong. I don't want any little cgild trying this. And perhaps this public announcement will encourage such which is a bad idea. But a part of me that bleeds when I see how our politicians, pastors & other leaders waste our money on luxury. That part of me will be very delighted if every needy child gets this chance.

Oops! .and I conceived this plan some 14 years ago OOOOooooooooooo :(

JSB said...

Hmm @ achieve his target of travelling through the air. I think he has crossed that off his list. LoL!!!

Anonymous said...

I don't think that is a goid idea. This boy intentionally snuck through security and hid in the tire hole of a plane with the intention to illegally enter the United States. Not only does that make Nigeria look bad ( though he didnt have to try hard to do that), but he broke the law. He should be punished to set an example to others. Now that he broke the law and is being released and even rewarded, get ready to see dangerous ppl begin to hijack nigerian planes seeiing how incredibly easy it is.

see nigerians with criminal minds. Even at 14 you are already calculating and planning how to go abroad, thats why i always say every nigerian including me are corrupt. No wounder dem dey born children with their eyes and palms open
