“This award came to us from the federal government of Nigeria. It actually did not come to me as a surprise because each time our Daddy GO visits us here in the school, he would declare that we are champions that every where we go that we must surely excel even above our equals. He has made several declarations about us and the entire chosen International secondary school, Mgbidi community,” she said.
She added: “in fact, they said: “Chosen so you made it.” I said yes, we made it because my pastor has always declared that “where I am not qualified” that his “God will qualify me” so having anchored our faith in that declaration we moved forward. What seemed difficult for others to receive Chosen people received everything even in excess.”
