The Borno state government has released the sum of three hundred and eight million, two hundred and sixty thousand naira for the payment of outstanding scholarship allowances. 

At a media briefing in Maiduguri, Executive Secretary state Scholarship Board Malam Bala Isa said the outstanding payment is for 2021/2022 academic session for indigenes of the state studying in over thirty universities within and outside the state.

According to him, fourteen thousand, four hundred and sixteen will benefit from the allowances. 

Malam Isa explained that Governor Babagana Zulum released the allowances to ease the economic hardship faced by parents occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy. 

“It is believed that this payment of over 300 million naira will go a long way in relieving the burden of student academic demands on their parents” the Executive Secretary said.

He added that the Governor urged the students to be dedicated and committed to their studies and make good use of their allowances for academic purposes. 

President National Association of Borno state Students NUBOSS Comrade Kyari Ahmed thanked Governor Zulum for prompt release of the allowances and promised to utilise the fund for academic purposes. 

Correspondent Dauda Iliya reports that students of medical colleges and faculty of engineering will receive fifty thousand naira each while those from core sciences, social and management sciences as well as humanities will get thirty thousand naira each.
