A politician in Adamawa state has been dragged online after he allegedly awarded 1,000 Naira scholarship to his constituents.
Pictures of the politician presenting N1000 notes to some recipients said to be students of FCE, Yola, is currently making rounds on social media.
Although, it’s unclear if the paltry sum is for ‘scholarship’, reports shared online by Adamawa indigenes claim that it is.
This has generated mixed reactions online as netizens question how the meagre amount would subsidize the students’ education.
