Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission NIDCOM, has appealed to the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC to pay the allowances, tuition, and other incentives of students on its scholarship scheme in the United Kingdom as most of them have turned to beggars on the streets of UK.

Many of the students who came out to complain, said the commission has refused to respond to all emails sent to them appealing for their fees to be paid or allowances released.

According to a statement released on Tuesday, July 28 by the NIDCOM spokesperson Gabriel Odu, Dabiri-Erewa appealed to the NDDC management team to as a matter of urgency, release the funds appropriated for the scholarship programme of these students.

Her statement reads in part;
”At the moment there have been persistent calls by the Students for urgent intervention. While deadline for payment of the fees of some of the students have expired or about to expire , non payment of their allowances have turned many of them to virtually become beggars”

  1. Presidency should find the lasting solution to this issues, why not paying their money and allowances, students in Europe are starving and you the people in NDDC are busy using 1.4billion to buy palliative for yourselves without paying students allowances, this is cruelty and wickedness. May Almighty God save us from the bad leaders we are having in this country. They should profer solution to their issues.
