Fuel Subsidy: State Governor Approves N10K For Students, Security Agents

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has directed that students of Kwara origin enrolled in public-owned tertiary institutions receive N10,000 each.

The governor also approved a N10,000 stipend for certain categories of security agents who serve as the first line of defence.

Rafiu Ajakaye, the governor’s chief press secretary, announced this in a statement on Tuesday.

The monetary palliative, according to Ajakaye, will be disbursed through the Kwara State Social Investment Programme (KWASSIP) Office.

The approval for students’ support, described as one-off in its scope, is a departure from the previous bursary award, which covered only final year students of tertiary schools.

The special support will be coordinated by a government committee to be headed by Prof. Shehu Raheem Adaramaja, chairman of the Kwara State Universal Basic Education Board (KWSUBEB). He will be supported by officials from the Ministry of Tertiary Institution, bursary department, Ministry of Finance, and a representative each from the National Association of Kwara State Students (NAKSS) and National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in Kwara State.
