Ugwuanyi Offers Bursary Awards to 165 Enugu Law Students 


June 13, (THEWILL) – Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has offered bursary awards to 165 students of Enugu origin in different campuses of the Nigeria Law School across the country.

The I65 beneficiaries of the bursary awards were identified and listed by Enugu law students when they interacted with Governor Ugwuanyi at the Government House, Enugu.

Confirming the disbursement of the bursary to the law students, the Executive Secretary, Enugu State Scholarship Board, Barr. Uche Levis Abonyi, stressed that each of the beneficiaries has received the sum of N100,000.00 from the state government, through his office.

He added that at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the Enugu State Government paid the total sum of N24.6 million to law students from the state to cushion the adverse effects of the pandemic, stressing, “This payment was made at a time most states were struggling to pay workers’ salaries due to economic recession”.

In his reaction, the leader of the law students, Michael Kenechukwu Onah expressed gratitude to Gov. Ugwuanyi for continued show of humility, benevolence and steadfastness to the wellbeing of Enugu indigenes and residents in spite of the nation’s economic challenges.
