In an exclusive interview with Legit.ng, the lady said that she got a full-tuition scholarship for her second degree. She was able to access the opportunity because of her amazing academic performance.
Awarded by the Development Africa Trust Scholarship, she stated that she was notified of her selection in May 2019 after applying in December 2018.
School in the UK is better
Oghenerukevwe revealed that study for one's masters in the UK is way easier than in Nigeria. She said in between a 40/50 minutes lecture, there is always a 10-15 minutes break.
Speaking further on the system of education in the UK university, she added that classes always ended 10 to 15 minutes before the time, which makes learning cool.
According to the young lady who now works in the UK, knowing what works for her was her academic 'secret' in school.

On the argument that allowing cryptocurrency in the country would help the unbanked in Nigeria, Oghenerukevwe disagreed. She said:
"Decentralized finance isn't going to help the unbanked in Nigeria if the unbanked don't have the financial ability/need to be banked and do not have the understanding or technical know-how to access crypto."
She added that cryptocurrency as the solution is "offering alternatives to the average middle to upper-middle-class Nigerian who has access to a smartphone, internet and knows enough to desire alternative ways to keep their money..."
The lady said that offering solutions like USSD which does not require advanced technology is a good way to help the unbanked.
