The second prize was won by Nduka Chukwuemeka of Oxfords international School, Abia State,

The other nine finalists also received brand-new laptops and consolation prizes, including books and other learning materials.

The bank said Eziaku beat 11 other finalists selected from over 7,000 entries received digitally by the UBA Foundation from students of senior secondary schools across Nigeria.

Eziaku won an educational grant of N3m to study at any African university of her choice, a brand-new laptop and many other educational tools from the UBA Foundation.

The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, UBA, Mr Kennedy Uzoka, said UBA had been touching lives and making a solid impact through the UBA Foundation.

He added that the annual competition had produced hundreds of winners, some of whom had long graduated from higher schools and had been impacting their communities.

“Like we did last year, we again increased the prizes to match the rising cost of living. Over the years, we have been assured that we are doing something very unique and truly African, and this is why the initiative is for those who wish to study in Africa, because we are proud of our continent,” he said.

The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, UBA Foundation, Bola Atta, congratulated the winners and commended them for their exceptional brilliance.

She said, “Every student who sent in an entry is a winner. To be confident about your writing skills and ambitious enough to enter a competition to further enhance your educational path is laudable.
