Zulum emphasized that this initiative aims to address the growing workforce demand for healthcare services due to the state’s increasing population.

The scholarship budget, he said, included N124,149,000 for tuition fees, while the remaining N1,181,040,000 would be disbursed as a monthly stipend of N30,000 to each student throughout their studies.
