Law School students beg Aiyedatiwa for bursary increment

Ondo State indigenes currently undergoing vocational training at the Nigerian Law School (NLS) across the country have passionately appealed to the State Governor, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa for an increase in their bursary as done by other States.
The appeal was contained in a resolution adopted by student leaders of the seven campuses of the school in Abuja during the weekend.
In a communique signed by Ademola Ogunmakin, the students said the appeal and personal intervention of the governor became necessary due to the unprecedented increase in the tuition fee by the NLS from N296,000 to N476,000 excluding admission fee and other ancillary expenses.
“We are constrained to cry out to our beloved Governor due to the excruciating and choking cost of surviving at the Law school.
Apart from the mandatory school fees, the cost of legal books and feeding have also made life very tough and almost unbearable,” the communique observed.
“We passionately enjoin our compassionate and dynamic Governor to intervene in our request for an increase in the bursary for Law students as done by all State governments.
“The urgent intervention will halt the noticeable large-scale drop out of Law students at the school and encourage others yet to resume one month after official resumption due to inability to secure their school fees.”
The students expressed optimism that judging by the recent impressive imprints of Governor Aiyedatiwa he would do the needful and follow the footsteps of other progressive-minded Governors who have justifiably tripled the bursary of their law students.
The students wished the Governor a most boisterous tenure in office and a rancour-free selection for the party flag as he shops for a second term.
