Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson, has described the 21 students on State Government scholarship to the renowned Lincoln University in the United States as worthy ambassadors, a pride to the state and their families.
This was contained in a congratulatory message Governor Dickson, the Government and the people of the state sent to the students, who all graduated today, Friday, May 12, 2017, for making the state proud, having successfully concluded their studies in flying colours.
The Governor, who expressed his personal delight over one of the students, who graduated in First Class Honours and the 20 others for their academic excellence, noted that, they have by their accomplishments, carved a niche for themselves and placed the name of Bayelsa in the global map of states with exceptional and unique academic endowments.
Governor Dickson also used the opportunity to express his deepest appreciation to the management of Lincoln University for their understanding and cooperation, despite the state’s inability to remit the needed school fees of the students, as at when they were due.
He, however, assured them that, with 500,000 US dollars already released to them, concerted efforts were being made to pay up the balance within the shortest possible time, stressing that, the Government and the people of the State will remain eternally grateful to the authorities of Lincoln University.
