Be good ambassadors of Yobe, Buni charges student lawyers
Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State has presented Scholarship Award Letters and computers to 69 Law Graduates going to the Nigerian Law School, charging them to be good ambassadors of the state.
The governor spoke on Wednesday at the WAW Hall, Government House Damaturu.
“As you go for your bar studies at the Law School, please be guided by the same spirit of hard work and discipline and commitment to your chosen profession that have defined your academic lives. This is because the law school is your next step to a life of service as lawyers and solicitors and advocates,” he said.
Noting that he was confident that the awardees would do Yobe proud, Buni urged them to also “shine as examples for those behind you who are now pursuing their law degrees here in our state university and in other institutions of learning across the country and the world.”
He said “Yobe State Government is taking responsibility for your registration and tuition fees and your wardrobe allowance. Our administration would also provide you with the books and computers that you need to study and to succeed. The sixty-nine beneficiaries will receive a cumulative package of about N38.4 million.”
He said education is one of his administration’s key priorities and that the government will continue to commit resources “so that our children in Yobe and our youths and all our people who want a good education can have access to it.”
