FGt Releases Over N9b To Clear Backlog Of Scholarship Allowances

The Federal Government says it has released N9.5 billion for the payment of backlog of scholarship allowances owed Nigerian students at home and abroad up to December 2018.

The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, who was represented by Alhaja Asta Ndajiwo, the Director, Federal Scholarship Board, disclosed this during a press conference in Abuja at the weekend.

Adamu said that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari had already expended over N800 million in 2018 for the payment of scholarship stipends to students at home and abroad.

According to him, with the current release, the administration will be spending a total of N10 billion for payment of scholarship to students in the 2018 budget “and we are determined to do more’’.

    1. No Stella, the FG wasn’t owing student scholarships for several years. They paid last year. It is the state governments that are not paying scholarships of students abroad just like River states governor playing politics with the lives of Nigerians abroad only because the students started benefiting from the time of his predecessor.
