Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, says he will be offering scholarships to 300 Nigerians to study in a private university in the Republic of Benin, Icon University.

Tweeting on Wednesday, Mr Fani-Kayode said the scholarship is in honour of his wife, Precious Chikwendu, and triplets – Ragnar, Aiden and Liam – who celebrated their birthdays on Monday.

“I will award scholarships to 300 students to the top Private University in a neighboring African country over the next 2 years. Fees will be taken care of. This will be done under the auspices of Snowhite PureHeart Foundation which is owned by my wife @snowhitey1,” he wrote.

“To commemorate the birthday of my wife and 3 sons I am offering a scholarship to 300 Nigerian students to Icon University in the Republic of Benin. This is the top private university in Cotonou and they have just awarded me an honorary doctorate degree. I am deeply humbled.”

The former minister said the interview for interested persons would begin next week.

Fani-Kayode has four boys with Chikwendu, a former beauty queen.
