Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman Abdulrazaq, fulfilled his promise on Wednesday by presenting N6 million cheques to six outstanding public school pupils who emerged as champions in the Presidential School Debate Championship held in Abuja.
The governor commended the pupils for bringing pride to Kwara State with their remarkable achievement. He reiterated his administration’s commitment to supporting their educational journey by providing each of them with N6 million and a full scholarship for their first degree in any public tertiary institution in Nigeria.

Furthermore, he announced the allocation of billions of naira in 2024 towards various educational and hygiene initiatives, including the Adolescent Girls Initiative for Learning and Empowerment (AGILE) and WASH programs, aimed at enhancing learning environments and ensuring the safety of pupils in schools.
Expressing gratitude to the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) for their dedication, the governor pledged continuous support to sustain their efforts in advancing education.
The Chairman of SUBEB, Prof. Raheem Adaramaja, extended appreciation to the governor for honoring his commitment to the debate champions. He assured that the pupils would strive to maintain excellence and bring home more accolades in future competitions.
