“LUCKY GOODNESS THOMAS*
I am pleased to inform us that our *Goodness Thomas*, who was denied admission into ABU Zaria has been offered admission at Igbinedion University to study Medicine and Surgery on FULL SCHOLARSHIP.
Other offers are still on the table for her and her family to choose. God’s ways are mysterious, you cannot understand this God. ABU Zaria thought they were hurting Goodness but God only used the institution to project her into limelight.
Special thanks to all those who kept faith and supported all through. Your likes, shares and comments on social media made the difference.
