The Sokoto State Government is sponsoring 15 students to study engineering courses in China.
The Chairman of Sokoto Scholarship Board, Murtala Abdulkadir Dan’iya, revealed this on Friday.
The students, who were drawn from the three Senatorial districts, will be leaving the country in the first or second week of November.
“They are currently undergoing a kind of orientation which is necessary for their stay in a foreign land.
“The state government has already released funds for their tuitions and upkeep.
Dan’iya added that more students would be sponsored abroad to study courses that are relevant to our people.
He, however, advised the students to work hard in order to justify the investment made in them by the state government.
