I Was Very Happy When Someone Tapped My Back & Told Me I Paid His Fees To Study At Oxford—Amaechi

During a campaign rally held in Rivers State, the former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, stated that he was very happy when somebody to whom he gave a scholarship to study at Oxford University tapped his back and told him that he had paid his school fees at Oxford University. 

He added that it doesn't matter whether a person is from Rivers or not; what matters is how long the person has stayed in the state. He revealed that he gave many students scholarships when he was governor of the state.


According to him, "If you have a child in Rivers State, and the child went to primary school in Rivers State, secondary school in Rivers State, and university in Rivers State, then you say I shouldn't give her a scholarship, I'll give her a scholarship." You know why? The child is a Rivers child. So I gave all of them scholarships. You know my happiness? When I traveled and somebody tapped my back and said, "Sorry, sir, I'm your scholar, I'm a student of Oxford University," and you paid my fees, I was very happy. That gave me happiness.
