NDDC Releases Funds To Overseas Scholarship Students

Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, has taken steps to redress the plights of its overseas scholarship students with payment of their fees and upkeep allowances.

Managing Director of the commission, Mr Nsima Ekere, disclosed this yesterday, saying he was disturbed when he heard about their challenges.
“I am very unhappy about the needless delays and the untold hardship our scholars are going through. This is not acceptable. 

They are our children. They represent the future manpower and professionals that we are building to help transform the Niger Delta region and we cannot afford to allow them go through this kind of suffering,” he said.

Ekere in a statement by the commission’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Mr Chijioke Amu-Nnadi also directed that beneficiaries of the scholarship programme be paid additional N5,000 to cover their local expenses before they embarked on the programme last year.

According to the statement, 32 out of the 200 that were selected for the programme have submitted their international bank details, adding that they would be paid immediately.
