Kaduna State has paid 22.6 million naira to 208 students for the 2019/2020 Academic session as bursary payment continues. In line with the transparency policy of the Kaduna State Scholarship and Loans Board, find below the names of the beneficiaries. Any student on the list who has not been paid must have supplied a wrong bank account number or a student’s account that cannot receive N109,000 at once. Such student will have to officially inform the Board in writing and wait patiently as the Board is currently focused on paying more students who have supplied adequate information.
Students are encouraged to immediately apply for the 2020/2021 bursary which is now open. Going forward, students will not have to apply annually but will just need to update their profile with their academic status to continue to enjoy the state government’s educational intervention.
It is very important, that students input correct and consistent information about themselves especially ensuring that they input the same date of birth as the one in their documents and the bank’s BVN record. If there are discrepancies, they should visit the bank to discrepancies, they should visit the bank to change the date of birth to the actual as shown in their documents. Students should also ensure that they input the correct bank details and avail the Board with upgraded accounts that can receive N109,000 at once.
The Kaduna State Scholarship and Loans Board will continue to listen to feedback on how to ease application and disbursement of funds but will not be distracted by naysayers, fake information peddlers and profiteers of the former ‘who you know’ influence peddling system as it tries to disburse government’s palliatives in a transparent manner.
In Kaduna, only what you know and not who you know will get you scholarship, bursaries and loans. Hassan Rilwan Executive Secretary
