The Kebbi State government has released
N156 million for the payment of tuition and
registration fees for indigent students of
Kebbi state on scholarship in tertiary
institutions within and outside the country.
Alhaji Murtala Yauri, the executive secretary
of the state’s scholarship board told
newsmen in Birnin Kebbi yesterday that the
payment to each institution would be
immediate. He said personal details of
beneficiaries would be scrutinized to avoid
irregularities.
Yauri said students who had earlier paid
their tuition or registration fees would be
refunded “after showing evidence of such
payment”.
He said N1.2 billion has been spent in the
past two years on the payment of tuition
and registration fees for students within
and outside the country.
