Victory Emenike Anonye, a student who tied for the top spot of the highest score in the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), has lamented the struggle he faced in medical school due to financial constraints.
Anonye, a 500-level student of medicine and surgery at the University of Jos (UniJos), said the recent school fee hike has made it difficult for his parents to raise fund for his education.
He scored 359 out of the 400 obtainable score by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
In an SOS email sent to NewsWireNGR, Victor writes, “When I applied for medicine and surgery, I considered the University of Jos, a super-reach school and had no plan on how to pay for it.
“With the increase in tuition fees this year, I am facing more challenges in financial need.
“As a 500-level medical student, I wish to spend more time on major clinical courses because they are core of my major and vital for my future career as a medical doctor.
“For this reason, I would greatly appreciate any help I can get to help me successfully complete my Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery degree.
“Receiving financial support will make a great contribution to my study at the University of Jos.
“This assistance would help me focus more on my studies. At the same time, this assistance would help me do more community service and outreaches and explore my potential in helping the needs of people.
“Additionally, getting financial aid would further motivate me to pursue academic excellence and make my dream of becoming a medical doctor a reality.”
