The National Association of Katsina state Students (NAKATSS) national body has explained why some tertiary students in Katsina are yet to be paid annual scholarship.
The NAKATSS national President, Comrade Nasir Al-Mustapha Danye Jibia in a chat with our correspondent revealed that the delay was due to the suspension of student screening exercise during the recent ASUU strike.
He said: “I want to appeal to the affected students especially those in tertiary schools to be patience. The recent ASUU strike is the key reason why the scholarship has not been paid.
“However, I have been assured from the relevant authority that payment will commence soon. “ He added
Mr. Danye further noted that Governor Masari ‘s led administration is ever committed toward development of education in the state.
