The Kebbi State Government has approved the sum of N314 million for the payment of registration and tuition fee for indigent students in national and foreign institutions.
According to the Executive Secretary of the Kebbi State Scholarship Board, Dr Sahabi Yauri, who made this known in Birnin Kebbi on Thursday, N147 million of the sum was for tuition, registration and tenancy for 30 indigent students studying medicine in Indian universities.
He added that N97 million was for the fees of 30 students studying medicine, dentistry and surgery in Sudanese universities, while N70 million was for 5,000 indigent students studying in tertiary institutions in the country.
The executive secretary said some of the beneficiaries were studying in the country in six institutions that included Federal University Birnin Kebbi (FUBK), North West University (NWU) Kano, Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria, Alqalam Islamic University Katsina and Sokoto State Polytechnic (SOSPOLY).
He explained that the amount had been released to the bank accounts of the benefiting institutions, stressing that payment was approved after scrutiny of students to avoid misplacement of priority.
Yauri then urged the students to reciprocate government’s gesture by studying hard to justify the investment made on them and commended the conduct of the students, especially those who were studying abroad. (NAN)
