President Muhammadu Buhari’s led federal Government has approved the sum of N75,000 per semester as stipend for undergraduate students studying Education programs in public universities in Nigeria.

Also, the Nigeria Certificate in Education students will be gratified with N50,000 as stipend per semester as part of the deliberate effort of Government to attract best brains into the Teaching profession.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, announced this on Tuesday at the World Teachers’ Day celebration held at Eagle Square, Abuja.

The Federal Government intention to gratify students who study Education was made this same time last year by the Mr. President and brought to fore this year by the Minister of Education with emphasis that the payment would soon commenced.

Adamu, whose speech was read by the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, Sunny Echono, said his Ministry would collaborate with the State Governments to ensure automatic employment of students on graduation.

He said: “Undergraduate students of B.Ed/B.A. Ed/BSc. Ed in Public institutions are to receive stipends of N75,000.00 per semester while NCE students will get N50,000.00 as stipends per semester.

“Federal Government should find the modality through which respective State Governments could provide automatic employment for NCE graduates at Basic Education level”, Adamu appealed.
