The Lagos State Government has again urged students of tertiary institutions to shun negative tendencies that could dent the image of their parents and that of the State.

The Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Education, Mrs. Olabisi Ariyo gave the charge recently at the presentation of bursary and local scholarships to students of Lagos State origin in various tertiary institutions (2014/15 ) set held at the Government College, Agege, Ipaja Road.

She implored the beneficiaries to avoid negative peer pressure as well as say no to cultism while remaining steadfast, focused and determined to forge ahead with courage and confidence.

The Permanent Secretary stated that the provision of bursary and scholarship is part of the present administration’s concerted efforts at improving the standard of education in Lagos as well as providing opportunities for its citizenry irrespective of their socio economic status.

Mrs. Ariyo added that the State Government has approved the recruitment of 1, 300 primary school teachers in addition to its commitment to the promotion of technical education and skill acquisition in order to “support and empower brilliant trainees to be self-reliant”.

Earlier, the Director, Lagos State Scholarship Board, Mrs. Omauton Yetunde Jegede commended the State Government for its dedication to the yearnings of many Lagosians through the bursary and scholarship programme.

She also used the occasion to express her appreciation to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for approving the payment of all outstanding Bursary for 2015.

It will be recalled that Bursary and Local Scholarship are given by the Lagos State Government to its indigene studying in tertiary institutions in Nigeria for the duration of their course.
