I intentionally applied for a scholarship for my programme. But for that, instead of them obsessing over the same tweets from 2012, they’d have been claiming my school fees were paid by some politician. But the ~ £50,000.00 was entirely covered by my scholarship. Thank God! pic.twitter.com/UPOL7QeJS7
