Faizal who spoke with Vanguard said: “I will like to study Medicine in any of the famous universities abroad. Meanwhile, I have been offered admission by at least seven universities in the United Kingdom and one university in Egypt, to study medicine.”

On her reading habit, Faizal who scored 226 in the last JAMB said: “I have no specific study hour because most times I study until I get tired and often fall asleep.”

“My mother contributed greatly to my academic success, because she encourages and grooms me. My father is a businessman who paid my school fees.’’

On her part, Faizal’s mother, Mrs. Hadiza Abubakar, who is a lawyer, described her daughter as a quiet, reserved and responsible girl who has shown intelligence right from her birth.

“She is a young girl with an already set mind. I wanted her to go into software engineering, but she said she wanted to read Biomedical Engineering.

“I sat her down, looked at it and said that if she goes for that, she will have a limited number of schools to fit in. I advised her to go for Data Based Management course.

“Being a lawyer and working in the Identity Management sector. I saw an area where she could go into, which is Data Base Management course, which has to do with software. She had already made up her mind . If Biomedical engineering is not available, she will go for medicine and she has been on that.”

On the early marriage in the north, as opposed to education, she said:

“I do not have a problem with early marriage if the girl is already matured. The important thing is that whoever is getting married should be focused.”

Hadiza who said her daughter takes after her said: ‘’Even though I got married at an early age, I knew where I wanted to be and education was my primary focus. I achieved a lot in education. I might not have been an A1 student like her, but I was good in many courses in school.”

The governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje on his part said: “The scholarship is meant to cover her undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate degrees at any university of her choice across the world. This gesture is to acknowledge merit and to especially encourage girl-child education in our state.”
