    I am a graduate from the university of Port Harcourt, Nigeria with a second class upper in Marketing. I have a zeal for further study but my current financial status is trying to deny me of that zeal. Therefore, i put myself here to see if i can get help through a scholarship to continue in my study abroad. Will be very grateful if my request is favourably considered.
