Okorocha Pays Stipends To Imo Students, Pupils

The free education programme initiated by the governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha got a boost at the weekend when indigenes of Imo State in primary and secondary schools received their stipends from the state government.

According to Governor Okorocha who flagged off the payment alongside his wife, Nneoma at the City School Owerri,  the stipend would go  a long way towards helping the parents train their wards in both primary and secondary schools.

He said the stipend would also make the beneficiaries develop a sense of belonging in the state.

He explained that the payment which is directly under the First Lady’s Office is paid quarterly to indigenes of the state in primary and secondary schools.

Mrs Okorocha said each secondary school student received  N500, while N300 was paid to each primary school pupil. In addition they received uniforms, shoes, bags, books and desks.
