UNIABUJA employs 500 students on N10,000 monthly

The University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) has employed 500 undergraduates in various units, offices and departments at the school, Dr. Abubakar Umar Kari has said.

Dr. Kari, the Dean of Students Affairs (DSA), said the 500 students were being paid N10,000 each monthly.

They were selected to participate in the Students Work Scheme (SWS) introduced shortly after Prof. Abdulrasheed Na’Allah, the incumbent Vice-Chancellor of the institution assumed office in July 2019.

He said the SWS was introduced by the VC, as part of ways to engage hardworking, and industrious students, in productive activities that will enable them raise money for upkeep, and also assist them to meet other pressing financial obligations.

He said the beneficiaries of the Scheme work for 8 to 10 hours per week, and resume work at their duty posts on days and times they initially signified their interests, before taking up their various appointments as office assistants, secretaries, cleaners and security guards, among others.

Dr. Kari, who spoke to PRNigeria at the university’s Main Campus, noted that Prof. Na’Allah has attracted foreign government’s intervention in the area of infrastructural and curricular development to UNIABUJA, among other enviable accomplishments, only less than six months after taking over the helms of affairs.
