Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has approved N60 million as bursary for 120 Oyo State indigenes in the Nigerian Law School.
Makinde announced the approval on Tuesday evening when a delegation of the students visited him on Tuesday in Ibadan.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the governor approved the sum of N500,000 as bursary for each of the 120 students.
The bursary is to cater for the 2019/2020 session of the state indigenes in the Nigerian Law School.
Makinde said that his decision was aimed at encouraging the students and assisting them to achieve greatness in their academic pursuit.
He urged them to ensure that they come back home to contribute their quota towards the development of the state after their studies.
According to the governor, Oyo State with the gesture of the bursary made an investment in the Law School students and would love them to also pay back the state.
