Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has reiterated his commitment to pay Abia State University (ABSU) students of Abia origin N30,000 each to help cushion the effects of Covid-19 on them saying his administration remains unwaveringly dedicated to the “welfare of Abia youths, whether as students, artisans or enrepreneurs”.
The Governor stated this in his series of tweets on Saturday.
He also revealed the guidelines to qualify for the pocket money which were spelt out during his meeting with the students and the institution’s Dean of Student Affairs late October.
“Still on the N30,000 pocket money I recently approved for each student of Abia origin at the Abia State University to help them cushion the effects of Covid-19, at my meeting with the students and the Dean of Student Affairs, late October, my guidelines for disbursement of the pocket money were clearly outlined as follows:
- All Departmental student leaders are to compile names of students of Abia origin in their respective Departments
- The University management is to also raise a similar list
- Government will cross match both lists and commence payment from December.
“The list shall include such details of the students as follows:
- Community of Origin
iii. LGA of Origin
- Phone Number, and
- Account Number
“Let me reiterate the commitment of our government to the welfare of our youths, whether as students, artisans or entrepreneurs”, he concluded.
