Ebizi Blessing, the Double First-Class Law graduate has been awarded an automatic scholarship up to the Ph.D. level to any University in Nigeria or abroad by Governor Duoye Diri of Bayelsa State.
Blessing made headlines in 2020 when she became the First Female First Class Law graduate from Niger Delta University,(NDU) a feat she also repeated at the Nigerian Law School.
Diri, who also announced Eradiri as the New Face of the Bayelsa Girl Child, said the gesture was aimed at making her a role model for young girls in the state and the entire Ijaw nation to emulate.
While receiving her and her father, Boloupaye Eradiri, at the Government House, Yenagoa, Diri also gave her automatic employment to lecture at the NDU’s Faculty of Law.
Describing Eradiri as a brilliant and rising star, the governor congratulated her on making history in bagging first class honours not only at the NDU, but also at the Nigerian Law School.
He also sought the Federal Government assistance towards the young lawyer’s development beyond what the state government was offering to enable her to add value not only to her state but the entire country.
Responding, Miss Eradiri expressed gratitude to Governor Diri for the honour and attributed her success to God and her exposure to good educational infrastructure.
They observed a minute’s silence in honour of the late Mrs. Eradiri.
