The Delta State Government has announced that the payment of the State bursary which was applied for earlier this year will commence this week.
This announcement is coming days after the Delta State Comrades community staged a peaceful online protest against the delay in the payment of the Delta State Bursary.
There is every possibility that school’s management, government, etc. may implement laws that are against the welfare of the students’ community.
Student’s activism therefore, is the act or process of making sure that the rights and privileges of students collectively and/or individually are protected and guaranteed in alignment with best practices and standard performance by using necessary available tools and tactics in achieving common goals.
Recall that last week, the Delta State NADESSTU national and chapter executives encouraged all Delta students to express their grievances online, where they also stated pledged to visit the Bursary board to register their displeasure.
The Delta State government have now come in and promised that the payment will commence this week.
The State Government made this known in its Facebook page where it posted that: “UPDATE: The Delta State Government has announced that the payment of the 2019/2020 bursary for students of the state in tertiary institutions across the country will begin this week.”
The result of the agitation indicates that whenever students sit and keep quiet, government will never listen. Good things actually comes through agitation.
We shall be posting updates on the DESOPADEC bursary soon. until then, expect your bursary.
