The Governor Of Imo State Have RECENTLY CANCELLED The Scholarship scheme for non-indegine of the state.
Okorocha, who announced the cancellation during an interactive session with journalists in Owerri, said the policy for Imo indigenes would still continue from primary to tertiary levels.
“The removal of the non-Imo children studying in tertiary institutions in Imo from the free education policy was due to the refusal of governors of other states to equally extend same gesture to Imo indigenes in their states,’’ he said.
According to him studying at primary and secondary levels would continue to enjoy the free education programme.
The governor, who commended the commitment of the teachers to the success in the education sector, said that the state was experiencing an increase in school enrolment.
“Before we introduced the free education policy in 2011, school enrolment for primary and secondary stood at 300,000 but today, the enrolment has gone up to more than 800,000 with successes in external examinations,’’ he said.
