Why we’re yet to pay students allowances – Katsina Scholarship Board 

The Katsina State Scholarship Board has cleared the air over the cause of delay of the payment of students’ scholarship allowances for the 2018/2019 academic session.

The management of the Board, in a press release dated 21st July, 2020 said ‘the payment to students of 2018/2019 academic session was distracted due to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike and COVID-19.

The press release also debunked the allegations by Mahdi Shehu recently who said that the Katsina State government under the leadership of Governor Aminu Bello Masari failed to pay students allowances since inception.

The press release reads in part: “The attention of the Katsina State Scholarship Board has been drawn to the recent video released by one Mahadi Shehu aleping that the Katsina State Government never paid Scholarship allowance to students of Katsina State origin from 2015/2016 academic session to date.

“The Board wishes to categorically state that, Hit Excellency, The Executive Coemar nf the State Rt. Hon Aminu Bello Masari CFR has since inception of his administration in 2015 paid the sum of N2, 584, 128, 250 from 2014/2015 to 2017/2018 academic sessions as scholarship allowances to 209,050 students.

“However, the payment to students of 2018/2019 academic session was distracted due to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike and COVID-19 pandemic.
