Students in Bauchi express dissatisfaction with the state government over the late payment of bursaries.

Students from Bauchi State who are members of the Air Marshal Abubakar Sadiq Students Forum (AMASS FORUM) have expressed their dissatisfaction with the state governor, Bala Mohammed, over the late delivery of bursaries to students in tertiary institutions.

In a statement to news outlets in Bauchi on Monday, Feb. 6, the forum’s chairman, Aliyu Hussaini, expressed concern about the numerous problems that students in Bauchi state are experiencing and stated that the forum is working on developing solutions to these issues, having begun to engage experts in various sections.

Hussaini stated that they were particularly concerned about the sponsorship of 200 students at Malikiyya College of Health, which had been offered by the previous administration but had been terminated by the current administration, as well as the segregation of Higher Islamic students from other tertiary institutions in the awarding of local scholarships, among other things.

They accused the governor of being hypocritical and only making the payment since elections were coming because the bursary had not been paid in the previous four years. They went on to say that they were looking for a replacement for the governor who was competent, disciplined, and had a wealth of administrative expertise.
