The second recipient, Obineme David Obinna, won a three-year scholarship at $ 12,000 per year, while Nwokemodo Prince Iwuno, the youngest of them, was awarded a four-year scholarship at $ 12,000 per year.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Ekezie said: “We want to leave a solid foundation for the next generation of basketball players. We never had such opportunities when we were growing up. We want to send them to where they will have the best training and at least get their first diplomas. “
“I had to come back because I felt that someone had to do something for these young people. You cannot have a future without investing in these young people.
“We think they will do well because they will be exposed to the best training and get a minimum degree and from there they will develop.”
