13 Year-Old Stowaway Visits Gov. Oshiomole.. Gets Scholarship

Daniel Oikhena, the young stowaway on Benin-Lagos plane flanked by Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State and Mr George Uriesi, MD/CEO Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria during a courtesy visit of FAAN management staff to the Governor in Benin City,wednesday 11th September 2013.
Governor Adams Oshiomole had this to say regarding Daniel

” “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 cannot help but laugh at his smiley face…Daniel has become a celebrity of some sort and it is good that good education is being provided for him…..however,with the way he is being celebrated,I pray another young man does not attempt this.
