The outgoing national Senate President of Federation of Oyo State Student Union(FOSSU), Comrade Oke Wasiu, on Wednesday commended the administration of Governor Seyi Makinde for approving the payment of N500,000 bursary to each of the 120 Oyo State students studying in the Nigerian Law School.
He said it was a welcome development and a further indication that the new administration is commited to the resuscitation of the moribund education sector in the state.
According him, “students who find it difficult to cope with the financial demands of Law School can now enjoy a seamless study.”
“On behalf of the Oyo State students studying in various institutions across the nation, I appreciate this kind gesture. I also implore you to extend this hand of generosity to other Oyo State students studying other courses. Many students are caught in the dragnet of academic failure as a result of lack of (sufficient) fund,” Oke added.
He, however, stated that while it would always commend the good acts of the administration in the state it will also constructively criticize and and speak up on its lapses, in order to ensure that the administration performs at optimal level at all times.
