Oyo State ‘technically bankrupt,’- Gov Makinde

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has approved the sum of N500,000 each as bursary to the 120 Oyo State indigenes in the Nigerian Law School.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary(CPS) to the governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, quoted the governor as saying that he was approving the sum of N60 million to cater for the 2019/2020 backlog of Oyo State indigenes in the Nigerian Law School.

It would be recalled that the last time Oyo State indigenes in the Law School received a bursary of N100, 000 was in 2012.

Makinde, who received some Law School students in his office, urged them to persevere in the face of ongoing economic challenges.

The governor admonished the student forum, led by Olaniyi Ogunlade, to ensure that they come back home to make contributions to the state after their studies.

He noted that the state had made an investment on the Law School students by the bursary award and would love them to make returns, urging them not to be carried away by the allure of Lagos and other cities.

Makinde stated that as soon as the ongoing rail project is completed, it would become easy to work in Lagos and live in Ibadan and vice versa.
