179 law school students, new lawyers get Kwara scholarship

Date: 2020-01-12

One hundred and seventy nine law students and new lawyers of Kwara State origin have been paid N100, 000 scholarship each after online application processes and verification that lasted for weeks.

According to the State Commissioner for Tertiary Education, Science and Technology, Hajia Sa’adatu Modibbo-Kawu, the payment made straight to beneficiaries’ accounts, was done in two batches after thorough screenings of the applicants.

The commissioner said the first batch comprised 68 backlog students, who are still in the law school out of the 89 who applied, while the second batch involved 111 lawyers of Kwara State origin that were called to bar in November, last year.

"On Friday 10 January, 2020, the government concluded the second batch by paying N100,000 each to 111 law school graduates who were recently called to bar after online and physical verification duly monitored by all the stakeholders," she said.

The government had in November paid N5000 bursary each to 8,304 final year students in all the Government-owned (state and federal) tertiary institutions across the country.

Meanwhile, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has commended Yunusa AbdulMutallab, one of the beneficiaries, who was twice credited during the exercise due to network glitches but voluntarily returned the extra payment of N100,000 to the Ministry.
