Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, Tuesday approved a sum of N500,000 as bursary for each of the 120 students, who are indigenes of the state at the Nigerian Law School.
Makinde, who announced the approval when a delegation of the students visited him in Ibadan, said the bursary was meant to cater for the 2019/2020 session of the state indigenes at the Nigerian Law School.
“Our administration will continue to prioritise education as the foundation upon which sustainable development will be built,” Makinde noted.
The governor added that his decision was aimed at encouraging the students and assisting them to achieve greatness in their academic pursuits. He urged them to ensure that they come back home to contribute their quota towards the development of the state after their studies.
He advised the students not to be carried away by the allure of Lagos and other cities after their studies.
The governor charged them to be persevere in the face of challenges and never lose hope no matter the challenges that may come their way, noting ”life is not just for those who work hard but for those who persevere as well.”
