The Management of Lala International School Gusau has gone into a strategic partnership with JiT Portals (Nig)s to further enhance the quality and value of services provided by the School to students and parents by facilitating university financial aid for best-graduating SS 3 students. This was made known in Gusau last week by the School Manager, Engineer Usman Lawal Lala shortly following the signing of an MoU on October 1st, 2019 with JiT Portals in Gusau, Zamfara State.

Elaborating further on the development, Engr. Usman said the strategic partnership entails provision of university financial aid grants to top-graduating female students of the School every year. “The university financial aid facility is fully sponsored by JiT Portals and it is available to the overall best graduating SS 3 female student every year”, he said.

The School Manager further added that starting from this Term (First Term 2019/2020 Academic Session), the school information management system deployed for Lala International School by JiT Portals will automatically start tracking the academic performance of every student of the school and by the end of five sessions, the first winner of the university scholarship grant will emerge. He said the portal automatically picks the best-performing girl by taking into consideration the cumulative results of every student from SS 1 First Term to SS 3 Second Term. “So right from this Term all performances will be tracked so that by the time we get to Second Term SS 3 in 2024/2025 Session, the first ever winner will emerge insha’Allah,” Engr. Usman said.

“The university financial aid facility is fully sponsored by JiT Portals and it is available to the overall best graduating SS 3 female student every year.”

The School Manager urged all female students to work hard and take full advantage of this unprecedented offer as no software solutions company in Nigeria does what JiT Portals is doing. He also urged all male students to equally sit up and perform well even though the financial aid offer is for female students at this time, saying “you never can tell, JiT Portals may extend this wonderful offer to the boys as well in future, so I urge the boys not to relent.”

Known as the “Software for Humanity Financial Aid Grants”, JiT Portals says this is an important part of the company’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibilities) programme aimed at encouraging girl-child education in Nigeria and beyond. The JiT Software for Humanity programme supports top-graduating girls to pursue first degrees in any Federal Government University in Nigeria. According to the student financial aid section on their official website at, this offer commences immediately upon deployment of their eduPortal solutions and continues for as long as the School continues to subscribe to their services.

This development is the best thing to have happened to Lala International School in recent times and it is hoped that it will go a long way in further consolidating the status of Lala International School Gusau as the best in Zamfara State of Nigeria.
