The Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Tuesday, urged to the Niger Delta Development Commission to pay the tuition fees and allowances of students under its scholarship programme in various universities in the United Kingdom.

In a statement released by Gabriel Odu of the NIDCOM Media, Public Relations and Protocol Unit, Dabiri-Erewa cited a letter dated June 18, 2020 sent to the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, calling his attention to the plight of the students abroad and appealing to the NDDC to pay them.

According to the statement, “At the moment, there have been persistent calls by the students for urgent intervention.

“While the deadline for payment of the fees of some of the students has expired or about to expire, non-payment of their allowances has virtually turned many of them to beggars.”
