THE Kaduna State government through its Scholarship and Loans Board, has supported two physically challenged persons and 25 other law students with N18.5 million for their Law School programme, No fewer than 90 candidates applied for support.
Executive Secretary of the board, Malam Hassan Rilwan, in a statement, yesterday, said the selection was done online in a rigorous and transparent manner.
‘’Ninety candidates applied. Forty-four of the 90 candidates scaled through the first stage of a rigorous and transparent application review. Thirty two candidates were eventually shortlisted
after the second stage of document review and confirmation of citizenship of Kaduna State, which is either by state of origin or by residency,” he stated.
Rilwan said verification was done at Nigerian Law School, noting that “only 27 of the 32 shortlisted candidates were recognised by the school as her legitimate students.
‘’The tuition fees of the 27 students were immediately paid directly to the Nigerian Law School account and each student will be given a laptop and an upkeep allowance to ensure they have a hitch free session.”
The cheque for the upkeep allowance was presented last Monday, to the students in the presence of the Director General of Nigerian Law School, Prof. Isa Chiroma, at the school’s headquarters in Abuja.
