The Borno State Government has approved the immediate release of over N400 million for the payment of registration fees for 112 medical students in a bid to revamp the health sector.

The Executive Secretary of the Borno State Scholarship Board, Malam Bala Isa, made this known while announcing the development in Maiduguri on Tuesday.

Isa disclosed that the Borno state government will sponsor all 112 students throughout the duration of their programs.

He said that the 19 indigent medical students are studying at Suez University of Egypt, while the 93 nursing students are at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital, UMTH Nursing School.

“I urge all the beneficiaries to take advantage of the opportunity for the overall development of the health sector for a healthier society.

“We are targeting long-term benefits, and this will add value to our health sector. The initiative will ensure that more medical professionals are trained, thereby strengthening primary health service delivery in the state,he said.

He said the gesture was part of the Governor Babagana Zulum administration’s commitment to the state’s 25-year development plan and the 10-year strategic transformation initiative.

Ali said the governor had urged the students to be hardworking and to face their studies seriously to justify the government’s effort toward sponsoring their education.
