In a statement, Thursday, jointly signed and issued in Birnin Kebbi by the President of Kebbi state students association, Federal University Birnin Kebbi, Comrade Faruk Altine, and his counterparts from Kebbi State University of Science and Technology Aliero and Waziri Umaru Federal Polytechnic Comrade Sagir Aliyu Bena and Comrade Saidu Jibrin.

According to them, the state government has successfully paid over 900 million Naira as a scholarship for Kebbi indigene Students across institutions and one million sixty thousand dollars to 262 students to study medicine and engineering in India, Sudan, and Ukraine.

The student unions confirmed that the earlier claim was from groups outside the Kebbi state, sponsored by some disgruntled politicians eager to sabotage the efforts of the Bagudu led government adding that this administration is the most student-friendly administration so far.

They also enjoined students in Kebbi state to complement the efforts of the state government by promoting peace, facing their studies, and engaging in vocational skills to become productive in society.
