ASUU awards N100,000 to Best Indigent Student

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has presented N100,000 to the best indigent student in Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi on Thursday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the student, Miss Iqmat Popoola, is a 300-level student of Agricultural Economics.

Speaking while presenting the cheque to the beneficiary, Prof. Victor Osodeke, ASUU National President, said the gesture was the union’s way of helping indigent students in the pursuit of their academic careers.

“The Academic Staff Union of Universities about three years ago introduced indigent scholarship where N100,000 is given to such a student and we pick one student from each of the universities that are members of ASUU.

“For this young lady, Miss Ikmat Popoola is a 300 level student of Agricultural Economics of ATBU and she has a CGP of 4.47.

“Honestly, this is the type of people that should be recruited as soon as they complete their programs in their university.

“These are the people we need in the system, not those who come through godfathers and godmothers.

“On that note, on behalf of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, we are presenting this token to you as our support towards the completion of your education,” he said.

He further explained that ATBU, Bauchi, is sponsoring three other indigent students with the same amount, University of Jos is sponsoring five students.
