Touchaheart Nigeria reports that the Federal Government has granted a stipend of N75,000 per semester for students pursuing education degrees at public universities in Nigeria.

In addition, Nigeria Certificate in Education students would get a stipend of N50,000 per semester as part of the government’s intentional attempt to lure the greatest minds into the teaching profession, as promised by President Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) last year.

Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education, made the announcement on Tuesday at the World Teachers’ Day ceremony in Eagle Square, Abuja.

Adamu, whose speech was delivered by Sonny Echono, Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, said his ministry would work with state governments to ensure that students are automatically employed upon 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 states’ governments could provide automatic employment for NCE graduates at Basic Education level.”
