The Borno State Government, under the leadership of Governor Babagana Zulum, releases N611.9 million for scholarship allowances.
In a move that is sure to benefit indigent students in tertiary institutions in Borno State, the state government has released N611.9 million for the payment of scholarship allowances for the 2021/22 academic session. The announcement was made by the Executive Secretary of the Borno State Scholarship Board, Bala Isa, at a news conference in Maiduguri.
The release of the scholarship funds is a significant investment in education in the state, and it shows the government’s commitment to making higher education more accessible and affordable for students in need. Education is a key tool for personal and societal development, and ensuring that students have access to higher education can have a positive impact on the state’s overall development.
Scholarship programmes provide financial support to students who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend university or college. This support can be critical in helping students complete their studies and obtain the qualifications they need to secure good jobs and contribute to the economic and social development of their communities.
The N611.9 million scholarship fund will benefit many students in Borno State, and it will help to alleviate some of the financial burden that many students face. The release of the funds will also help to ensure that more students are able to access higher education and develop the skills and knowledge they need to contribute to the growth and development of the state.
It’s worth noting that the scholarship funds must be distributed fairly and efficiently to ensure that they reach the students who need them the most. This means that the scholarship board must have a transparent and well-managed process for selecting eligible students and disbursing the funds.
Overall, the release of N611.9 million for scholarship allowances by Governor Zulum is a positive development for education in Borno State. It’s a testament to the state government’s commitment to investing in education and supporting students in need. By making higher education more accessible and affordable for students, the state is taking an important step towards building a more prosperous and resilient future for its citizens.
