Good News For IMO State Students
The Rochas Foundation, a charity organization dedicated to the educational development of the less-privileged, is developing facilities to open Nigeria’s first free university.
The Rochas Foundation currently owns and runs five secondary schools around the country offering free education to indigen students. The schools are located in Ogboko (in Imo State); Owerri, Kano, Ibadan, and Jos.
Addressing the public at the Imo Freedom Square, Owerri, Okorocha promised to pay scholarship of N100,000 to each student of Imo state origin in Imo State University, adding that each recipient would get N70,000 free and N30,000 as a loan to be paid upon completion of studies, with no basis for collateral.
He also said students undertaking National Diploma(ND) at the Imo state polytechnics would receive N60,000, with N40,000 free and N20,000 as loan, while those undertaking Higher National Diploma (HND) would get N60,000 free and N20,000 loan.
The governor disclosed that the scholarship fund would be paid from the next academic session, adding that by September, every school in the state would be autonomous.
It is only a few months from now… Lets hope he keep to his promise!
