Mufutau Akuruyejo, a Computer Engineering student of the University of Lagos, Akoka, was in a happy mood. He was fortunate to be selected among the winners of the MTN Foundation’s Science and Technology Students scholarship. Having done very well and consistently maintaining the required 2.1 grade every semester, he was considered good enough to participate in the fully-funded, nine-week CERN ICT Openlab programme in Switzerland. He was the first Nigerian and African to be selected.
