Nigerian students in UK are now beggars – Dabiri-Erewa reveals messy details

Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, claims that Nigerian students studying in the UK students have turned beggars following the non-payment of their tuition and allowances by the NDDC.

She therefore appealed to the Niger Delta Development Commission to pay the allowances, tuition and other incentives of students on its scholarship scheme in the United Kingdom.

She said the students had turned beggars following the non-payment of their tuition and allowances by the NDDC.

Some of the affected students had complained that they had been suspended by their schools for non-payment of tuition and other fees.

But Dabiri-Erewa in a statement on Tuesday by Mr Gabriel Odu of the NiDCOM Media, Public Relations and Protocol Unit,  made reference to a letter written to the Minister of the Niger Delta, Sen. Godswill Akpabio,  dated June 18, 2020, drawing attention to the plight of the students, and urging the NDDC to pay them.

The statement read, “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.”
