According to Mr. Godwin Obaseki, the Governor of Edo State, Aminat Yusuf, who achieved the highest academic performance as a law student at Lagos State University (LASU) with a perfect Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 5.0, will receive a monthly salary from the Edo State Government and will also be supported financially for her Law School program.
The governor, represented by the Head of Service (HOS) Anthony Okungbowa Esq., mentioned that additional benefits have been granted to acknowledge the exceptional achievements of this remarkable student.
According to him, “This is an update on our daughter, Aminat Yusuf after the Government of Edo State honoured her in respect of her academic performance in LASU for graduating with a perfect CGPA of 5.00.
“Following this achievement, the government offered her automatic employment and the governor has now approved other things for her beyond the employment.
“The governor has directed that Aminat Yusuf will be sponsored on scholarship for one year in the Nigerian Law School and that the government will be responsible for the provision of all her needs till she completes the programme.”
He added: “The governor also approved that for every month that she will be in law school, she will receive an up-keep allowance equivalent to the salary of a State Counsel, which is almost N200,000 naira.
“This is in recognition of the feat she achieved in LASU. We are proud of her achievement and hope she will join us after her law school programme as we will write to NYSC to ensure that she embarks on her one-year compulsory youth service in the State.”
