Se­na­tor Heineken Lokpo­biri has do­nated the sum of N2.8mil­lion to 56 law stu­dents from the Bayelsa West Se­na­to­rial District, where he rep­re­sents.

The amount is given yearly by the se­na­tor to the stu­dents as bur­sary al­lowances.

A state­ment jointly signed by Ofoni Solomon and Paul Teo­bor Git and Tobi Su­fade Jef­fer­son, said the law stu­dents study­ing in the na­tion’s law schools in Abuja, Enugu and Kano got N50, 000 each.

It de­scribed the ges­ture by the se­na­tor as a huge source of in­spi­ra­tion to them, adding that it has helped in re­liev­ing the stu­dents and their par­ents of some of their fi­nan­cial bur­den.

The stu­dents pledged to work hard and come out in fly­ing colours in or­der to jus­tify the sup­port, ap­peal­ing to other law­mak­ers from the state to em­u­late Se­na­tor Lokpo­biri by of­fer­ing sim­i­lar as­sis­tance to stu­dents in their re­spec­tive zones.
