Seyi Makinde, Oyo governor, has approved the sum of N500,000 as a bursary for every indigene of the state at the Nigerian Law School.

Makinde announced his decision on Tuesday saying his administration will give priority to education

The governor said he made the commitment when representatives of Oyo state indigenes at the Nigerian Law School paid him a visit.

Makinde said that his decision was aimed at encouraging the students and assisting them to achieve greatness in their academic pursuit.

He urged the students to return home and contribute their quota towards the development of the state after their studies and not be lured by other cities.

“Representatives of Oyo State indigenes at the Nigerian Law School visited me today. I approved the sum of N500,000 to be paid as bursary to each Oyo State indigene at the Law School,” Makinde wrote.

“Our administration will continue to prioritise education as the foundation upon which sustainable development will be built.”

Upon inauguration as governor of the state, Makinde scrapped levies charged in public schools across the state saying: “We want enrollments to go up, we want our children off the streets and in the classrooms. We are throwing the school doors wide open”.

Students in public primary and secondary schools were previously charged N3,000 each
