Students of Ondo State origin under the aegis of National Association of Ondo State Students (NAOSS) have appealed to the State government to pay their 2013/14 bursary award.
The students accused the State governor, Olusegun Mimiko of neglecting and leaving them to suffer, adding that they have sent several letters to his office, with no response from him.
The students, who spoke through some of the association’s senators, said the annual bursary was the only direct benefit they get from the State government, and that they are disappointed in the leadership of the State for refusing to pay them in the last two years.
In a statement signed by the senators, they lamented that the delay in bursary payment was affecting the progress of the association, noting that students have stopped attending the association’s weekly meetings on various campuses across the country.
According to one of the senators and president of NAOSS Unilorin Chapter, Falusi Fisayo, the students will be mobilized to wrok against the interest of the State government in the forthcoming election, if the bursary award is not paid within the next two weeks.
