Governor Dikko Radda of Katsina State has approved the release of N38.5 million scholarship for 77 students from the state studying at the Nigerian Law School.
This is contained in a statement signed by the spokesperson of the State Scholarship Board, Salisu Lawal-Kerau, on Saturday in Katsina.
He said the money was the maintenance allowance of the 77 law students for the 2021/2022 and 2022/2023 academic session.
According to him, the gesture is to mitigate the effects of the current economic hardship on the students and to encourage them to concentrate on their studies.
He said that the board has concluded arrangements for the disbursement of the money to the law students.
WikkiTimes recalls that Radda had in August last year flagged off the disbursement of N640,648,546 million in bursary allowances to both fresh and continuing students studying in 126 institutions of higher learning across the country and abroad.
