The Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has approved the immediate payment of scholarship funds to all indigenes of the state studying in various institutions worldwide.
In a statement issued by the spokesman to the governor, Mallam Imam Imam, this is in fulfillment of the present administration’s promise to ensure the best education available to Sokoto citizens.
It said already, approval has been granted for the payment of the sum of N387.9million for students studying in schools in Europe, America, Asia and some African countries, excluding Uganda, Sudan, Niger Republic and Bangladesh.
The statement said for payments to students in the four countries mentioned above, a verification committee has been set up to ascertain the true number of students there and the institutions they are attending.
However, a verification exercise to determine the number of beneficiaries of the state’s scholarship in schools across Nigeria will be undertaken with a view to capturing them in the new biometric data system, after which payment will be made.
