While giving the criteria for accessing the scholarship, Governor Sule directed the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Education to not only ensure that beneficiaries come from every local government but that only children of the poor benefit from the scholarship.

“The way we are going to distribute the scholarship is that every LGA will have the opportunity so that  we will give it to youths that have excelled in their various endeavors.

“We will select people mostly from the families that have no hope of having international education,” the governor directed.
