Ogun Govt Clarifies Issue On Education Cash Award- Says It Is For All Indigenes In Tertiary Institutions

Ogun State Government says its  Educational Cash Award For Student Help (OGUN EDUCASH), is for all students of the State origin in all tertiary institutions across Nigeria, to cushion the effects of economic hardship on the learners and their parents.

The State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu who made the clarification in a statement made available to Edu-Biznews on Wednesday, stated that all tertiary institutions’ authorities had been duly informed on modalities in collating and forwarding names of students in their respective schools to the Ministry, pointing out that the submission closes on Friday, March 1, 2024.

It indicated that entries would only be accepted from the list submitted by the respective higher institutions and not by individuals, adding that the list submitted must be accompanied by a covering letter with the official letterhead paper of the institution, signed by the head of such institution, Vice-Chancellor, Rector or Provost and or their assigned authorised official.

The release further stated that soft copies of the list should be in Microsoft Word or Excel Format and be sent to arigbabu@gmail.com: abayomiarigbabu@ogunstate.gov.ng: and moest@ogunstate.gov.ng, warning that scanned copies would not be accepted.

It informed that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) registration number supplied would be verified and false submissions would be removed from the list, just as any individual account that would not correspond with the name of the student submitted or not bear the same name of a student as submitted by the institution, would not be credited.

According to the statement, all students of Ogun State origin in all public and private higher institutions in Nigeria were enjoined to approach the Students' Affairs Office in their respective institutions for further information and registration, to enable them benefit from OGUN EDUCASH.
