The Yobe government offered N38.4 million scholarships to 69 law graduates attending law school in Nigeria on various campuses in the country.
Governor MaiMala Buni announced this in Damaturu by presenting the check to the state scholarship council.
Buni said: “The 69 beneficiaries will receive a cumulative package of around N38.4 million.
“To help you achieve it, the Yobe state government is taking responsibility for tuition and tuition fees and wardrobe allowance.
"Our management will also provide books and computers that you need to study and succeed."
The governor ordered the beneficiaries to be good state ambassadors.
“So I encourage you to dig deeper, study hard and roll up your sleeves. I encourage you to do your best so that one year from now, all of us here in the state will be so proud of you. " he said.
Dr Abubakar Kagu, the executive secretary of the state's Scholarship Board, praised the governor's gesture.
"Thank you for keeping your promise that the younger generation of Yobe Indians will receive every support and opportunity to explore their potential." Kagu said.
