Speaking at the weekend in Yenagoa when he led delegates of PAP to tour the facilities in the University, Dikio also disclosed that the selection process for the PAP’s scholarship scheme must be based on merit. He explained that the beneficiaries of the scheme must compete for placements in the best universities, describing scholarship as a privilege and not a right.

Speaking to some of the beneficiaries of the scheme in the school, he advised them to strive for excellence in their chosen careers and to aim for extraordinary successes instead of settling for ordinary achievements in their professions.

“I would like you to have a better understanding of scholarship. The scholarship is a privilege and one to be optimally used. Scholarship priority will be given to beneficiaries in courses with comparative advantage to the region.”

In his welcome address, Professor Ebitimitula Etebu, the vice-chancellor of the University thanked the PAP helmsman for the visit and assured him of the institution’s readiness to provide its students with modern medical knowledge and skills to give them an edge over other graduates in the labour market.
