The British- Nigeria Education Trust (BNET) disclosed on Wednesday that an anonymous donor donated the sum of one million pounds sterling (about N250 million) for the upgrade of Kings College, Lagos State, and Edo College, Benin, Edo State.
The chairman of the Trust, David Reeves, revealed this in London at a reception organised by the Nigerian High Commission for BNET, noting that the donor emphatically requested that the donation be spent on the schools.
He said, “We have been most encouraged by a recent anonymous donation of one million pounds sterling; the donor has charged us with negotiating the use of this very generous amount of money with two of the major schools in Nigeria… The schools are Kings College in Lagos and Edo College in Benin.
“We are already in discussion with them and hope to identify a major project in each of them,” he added.
Mr. Reeves however assured that a chunk of the donation would be set aside for scholarship schemes for the less privileged students in both schools.
