Malomo noted that the N125,000 was to the students continue with their education in the university.

He said: “The students who benefitted from the scheme expressed their gratitude to the university’s management team for making their dreams a reality, notwithstanding their financial constraints.

“They thanked  the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Fasina and his team for showing support towards their education.

“They prayed that God will bless their children too and make them achieve the best in their future endeavours.”

Malomo, who unveiled the scheme, said the insurance package was introduced as a special policy to cater for students who suddenly lost their parents or guardians responsible for funding their education.

“Students will on submission of relevant documents, be screened for the claims of about N125, 000 each. The funds are sourced from the premium of N1, 000 paid by all students each session.

“The criteria for qualifying for the package include earlier payment of the N1,000 premium along with school fees, losing a parent or guardian or the parent or guardian becoming fatally injured to a state of permanent disability,” he said.
