The governor said majority of those to be sponsored would be girls.
“Discussions are in top gear with a university in India to send one hundred youths, mostly women, to study medicine.
“This is to shore up the number of women medical doctors in the state, hence, encourage more women to seek medical services in the hospitals.
“We are also discussing with other universities across the world, with a view to send another batch of one hundred youths to study various medical professional fields like pharmacy, dentistry, radiography and medical laboratory science, among others.”
Tambuwal explained that the programme was part of ongoing efforts to reposition the education sector in the state.
The governor stressed that the administration would continue to “take the bull by the horn” and encourage more people in the state to acquire qualitative education in spite of dwindling resources.
