The incessant protests by Nigerian students in the UK is “embarrassing”, an official of the Nigerian High Commission in London has stated.
About 34 postgraduate students protested on Monday on the Nigerian High Commission in London, blocking the three entrances to the embassy building.
The aggrieved students are among the many 94 students of the Batch 2018 of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) overseas scholarship programme who’re but to obtain tuition and allowance for their upkeep from their sponsor – the NDDC.
Their scholarship has not been funded in any respect, for 2 years now, while different students in succeeding batches have acquired remittances from the NDDC.
The NDDC, which hitherto described the students as “hirelings masquerading because the Commission’s scholars”, last week stated they had been making an arrangement to get the cash throughout to the students.
