The Federal Government has approved a N75,000 stipend payment for undergraduate students and a N50,000 stipend payment for NCE students as Nigerian teachers celebrate World Teachers Day today.
Teachers’ Day is a special day to show teachers how much we appreciate them. On this day, we celebrate the special contributions that teachers have made to our communities or to a particular field.
A stipend of N75,000 each semester has been granted by the Federal Government for students enrolled in degree programs in education at public universities in Nigeria.
Additionally, as part of the deliberate effort of the government to recruit the brightest minds into the teaching profession as promised by President Muhammadu Buhari last year, students pursuing the Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE) will receive N50,000 as a stipend per semester.
