Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has approved N290 million for the payment of bursaries and scholarships to Lagos students in tertiary institutions, Siggy reports.

A spokesman for the National Union of Lagos State Students (NULASS), Hassan Abdusalam, on Thursday, said the students were grateful for the 2021 bursary and local scholarships for indigent Lagos students in tertiary institutions across Nigeria.

“Our governor, Mr Sanwo-Olu, has been living up to expectations,” he eulogised. “He has listening ears and, more significantly, attends reasonably to the needs of the people.”

”He has approved the sum of N290 million for our bursary and local scholarships, which is highly appreciated.

“We commend him for this and other numerous assistance,” Abdulsalam said.

Mr Abdusalam, however, appealed to Mr Sanwo-Olu to increase the amount given for bursary and scholarship in view of the high cost of living.

According to him, students who are studying non-science courses are receiving N25,000 at the moment, while science and engineering students receive N30,000 and N50,000 respectively, for bursary.

He said that those on scholarship were receiving N200,000.

“We are, therefore, appealing to Governor Sanwo-Olu, as part of his agenda of better welfare of Lagosians, to increase the bursary to N50,000 flat rate, while scholarship should be increased to N250,000.

“This is due to the current economic situation in the country, as N25,000 can’t sustain a student on campus,” he said.
