Information reaching THE INFORMANT247 from the National Association of Kwara State Students indicates that the government has accepted the adoption of the conventional “cheque payment” for disbursement of this year’s bursary award.
When contacted on this, the Publicity Secretary of the Association, Comr. Salihu Ayatullahi said, “I have lecture(s) in school, so I was not part of the meetings, that of yetserday and today. Though I can say the governor earlier made the decision that E-payment will be used, but now I just confirmed that he has agreed to the conventional disbursement modality (cheque payment) which will start soon.”
It will be recalled that the student body and state government has been in logger-head over the modalities to adopt for the disbursement.
