The Federal Government says it has given out N75,000 to each of the 2,889 students studying education-related courses in Nigerian higher institutions.

This is according to data given by the Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, during the first quarterly meeting of the Federal Ministry of Education on Tuesday.

In 2022, the ministry invited applications from qualified students studying education courses in universities and colleges of education.

During the commemoration of World Teachers Day in 2021, the Federal Government said students undergoing degree programs in education in public universities will get a N75,000 stipend per semester, while their counterparts undergoing the Nigeria Certificate in Education will get N50,000 per semester.

While giving statistics at the quarterly meeting, Mamman said 2,889 students have so far benefited from the scheme.

While also sharing statistics from the other schemes under the Federal Scholarship Board, Mamman said: “345 individuals are beneficiaries of the Bilateral Education Agreement scholarship, 51 for the Commonwealth scholarship, 2,122 beneficiaries under the Nigerian Scholarship Award, and 724 beneficiaries under the Teachers Internship Scheme.”

Mr. Tanko Sununu, the Minister of State for Education, earlier stated that the goal of the quarterly citizenship engagement was to raise awareness of the ministry’s activities.

He added that the engagement will also promote mutual understanding with stakeholders and citizens, build and sustain public trust, and improve transparency and accountability in the sector.

“Worthy of mention is that this engagement also aims to improve efficiency and streamline government operations by identifying and addressing bottlenecks,” he said.
