Gombe Disburses N120m Scholarships

No comments :
THE Gombe State government has made available N120 million   scholarships for the state’s indigenes studying in various higher institutions of learning across the nation.
The Commissioner for Higher Education, Dr. Isa Mohammed Wade, who made this known to reporters yesterday in the state capital, said the decision of the state government was to make the students committed to their academic programmes.

He said the disbursement would be done through the newly introduced e-card, with the code-name: “The Talba Bursary Card.”
Wade said the newly-introduced mechanism was part of the state government’s policy to address some of the hindrances often encountered in the payment of scholarships to students from the state.
He said: “It is an e-wallet that enables students to access their scholarships whenever the government pays,” adding that “It is just like the ATM card.”
