Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has started the payment of bursary to indigenous students of Kogi State University according to reports by TheNation, though, the plan was made earlier and students have complaint when they did not get the payment as promised.
However, on Wednesday, students were seen jubilating at the Ayingba campus of the University as the indigenous students of the state received bursary alerts.
A student who got a bank alert of about N11, 000 confirmed the state government has commenced bursary payment.
The Kogi state government as part of its “New direction government” promised all indigenous students in the state a fixed sum for their bursary allowances.
When the government delayed the process, some students made known their displeasure over the state government inability to stick to the agreed date set for the payment.
