The Zamfara Indigene of Nigerian Law School Forum has appealed for urgent intervention from Gov Dauda Lawal in settling their registration fees for the 2023-2024 academic session.
This is contained in a statement jointly signed by the Chairman and Secretary of the Forum, Comr. Mubasshir Umar Gusau and Mahmud Sani-Kaura Friday and made available to our Correspondent in Gusau the state capital Friday.
According to the statement, more than 90 percent of Zamfara indigene who studied law, graduated from various universities and secured admission to the Nigeria Law School now could not pay for their registration fees due to financial difficulties.
“The admission to law school comes once in a year and admission is secured before fees is paid which is our burden”.
Our medium reports that due to exorbitant school fees of the Nigerian Law School, state governments especially in the North pay the registration, mobility and logistics for their indigene law students who were qualified and admitted in the Law School.
The students call on Zamfara state government to salvage them from missing the opportunity and settle their law school fees to achieve their goals.
“We are appealing to government to consider our request as the deadline for the registration is approaching”. The statement reads in part.
The Forum appreciate rescue mission policy of Gov Dauda Lawal under which he declared emergency to education sector in the state.
