Minister of State, FCT, Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu has resolved to support the indigent, vulnerable and willing families resident in the FCT to acquire and gain basic, secondary and tertiary Education in it’s Social Welfare Tuition Scholarship Scheme.
The goal of the program, which is being promoted by the Social Welfare Department of the Social Development Secretariat, is to make sure that citizens who want to progress their educational goals are able to do so without being prevented by lack of funding.
Modalities employed to achieve above OBJECTIVES include, (I) cushioning & mitigating the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on parents through free enrollment, tuition fees payment and organizing free Lectures for both the NECO, WAEC, NABTEB and IJMB candidates.
