Eche Mercy, a determined Nigerian girl hailing from APA local government in Benue State, is facing the harsh reality of losing her hard-earned admission to pursue a career in medicine and surgery due to financial constraints.
The orphan, who tragically lost both her parents in 2009, has turned to concerned netizens for assistance in her pursuit of higher education.
Mercy’s touching story highlights the obstacles she has faced on her educational journey.
Despite the loss of her parents, she managed to excel academically and secure an opportunity to study for an MBBS degree at Benue State University Makurdi.
Her journey, however, took an uncertain turn as her sole sponsor, her aunt, found herself unable to continue supporting Mercy’s education at the university level due to financial difficulties.
In her words;
“My name is Eche Mercy from APA local government Benue State, and I have been given an opportunity to pursue an MBBS degree at Benue State University Makurdi.
“I lost both of my parents since 2009 and I am the only child of my parents, my Aunty has been the sole sponsor of my academics throughout my secondary school but is unable to sponsor my medical career in school due to financial difficulties.
“As it stands I would lose my mbbs admission if I don’t pay my tuition before matriculation which is speculated to hold next week. The reason for my delay in seeking for help was because I was hoping my family would be able to raise my tuition fee but as been unable to do so and have said I should forfeit my admission, I believe I have what it takes to succeed and I am determined to see my dream come to pass.
“My tuition fee for a session is N250,000 but the first semester is N155,000 which I need to pay urgently to be matriculated. I need your support to be able to pursue my dream of being a doctor. Attached to this letter is my Admission letter, WAEC, JAMB result.”
Loveth Sule asked; “How much is the full fees.”
Henry Ejekwu said; “Most of us dat went to sch we re neva financially buoyant but God grace speaks for us. Left for our background some pipu wil neva move on in life. Helper can come frm anywhere.. may her dreams com tru d help of God above .
Ogboche added; “Before him there is no impossibility. Her beginning could be like this but you can’t predict what God can do for her. I started MSc with less than 10k in my account, but I spent not less than a million to complete it. Pray for long life for her and those helping her. It is well with them.”
