Boubini JONES-WONNI, an Ijaw, is from Ese-Odo L.G.A of Ondo state. Born to the family of Dr. and Mrs. Jones Wonni.
She started her education at Banky’s Private School in Abuja, where because of her intelligence, she was asked to enroll for the common entrance at primary three.
She made the best result and was admitted into Word of Faith Group of Schools in Abuja, where she sat for the 2013/2014 SSCE and had an outstanding result with ‘As’ and ‘Bs’ in all her subjects, and was made valedictorian of the year.
She therefore expressed her gratitude to God and then to the Federal Government. She said “I want to express my gratitude to God and then to the Federal Government through the Presidential Amnesty Programme, PAP, to avail me of this opportunity to gain admission into Miles College in Alabama to pursue my first degree in Biology.
“Today, I have successfully completed the programme, I thank God for being with me throughout the programme, and He crowned my effort. I was not expecting this but I thank God.”
The Special Education Scholarship Programme which helped her study at the Miles College is a programme of the Federal Government of Nigeria to support the oil-rich region of the Niger Delta. It was flagged-off by the Government of President Goodluck Jonathan from when Boubini was drafted in as a beneficiary.
