Abia State University Students under the aegis of Abia Joint Students Leaders have appealed to the state government to reconsider its decision on the payment of N30,000 stipends to indigene students of the institution.
 
The students made the appeal in a statement made available to ABN TV, while also calling on the state government to consider the inclusion of students of other tertiary institutions in the state in their welfare packages.

According to the students, the proposed N30,000 stipends should rather be converted to their fees and deducted from their tuition, adding that it would be more impactful to them.

Recall that, the Okezie Ikpeazu led administration had announced the payment of the sum of N30,000 bursary, to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 to indigene students of ABSU. 

Expressing their concern over the prolonged ASUU strike, the students called on the federal government to respond positively to the demands of ASUU as the future of Nigerian students is at stake.
