You are welcome, as it is in this country you will most likely not be getting any news or further explanation . Most likely a prompt on when fresh applications will be available.
I hope this helps.

Oh well, the truth will always remain very bitter. I have never for once spread any fake news.I have always been consistent in providing reliable information as it comes. It hurts me as well but it remains the truth.Fresh applications is the next step and that happens soon. It's not for you to accept it.It is what it is.

NDDC board members tenure has been extended till 2020. So says the Presidency.

This is worse than the rumoured cancelation. I hope scholars funds weren't used to bribe national assembly members, who we all know are already rich from our collective wealth. Why allow us go through the stress and risk of going for test and interview when you have no clearcut plan of providing funds? This country and its leaders are really a big joke. This is annoying beyond any proportion.

Y'all Shld keep calm and wait for the payment of owed scholars after which the list comes next. What we need is update on the payment process.No need for these rumors from sources on the list till after payment. Even the MD had reneged on the list cos of the payment issue. So without payment there won't be any new process.

@ Brainy, it is so frustrating,but that's what it is.There was a tussle at the National Assembly over this issue only for the newly appointed Chief secretary to ascertain the position of this current board tenure to supercede the year 2017. So we have to contend with this board for another 4 years. The Scholarship process has been jeopardised and now a new application is forthcoming.Really Sad

It has been cancelled,its not a rumour.Fresh applications is the next step.But I think our set might be granted some concessions.We might not need to present new admission letters because of cost implication.The previous set will obviously be paid soon.

It's not logical using an old (possibly expired)admission for a fresh application. At what stage will the waivers be granted (cbt Or Interview)? The complexity of a fresh application of over 10000 applicants combined, those consultants can't handle it if going by the mess they did with that of this yr. The last award process had been concluded only to be delayed cos of the payment issue. Forget whatever you were told, the 2017/2018 award list will be out after payments have been conclude.

I have emailed again to ask about the timeline of payment not expecting any response anyway. However, I did get a response and all I was told that a specific date or timeline cannot be given as payments are handled by the commission and CBN. So it sort of depends on CBN processing. Fingers crossed. I will inform the house if I have received payments.

Hi, I'm a 2015 (PhD) scholar. The payments I'm referring to is for past or perhaps I should say current scholars only. I'm afraid I am unable to give info on the status of 2017 prospectives', but I guess as soon as outstanding payments have been sorted for us then hopefully they will focus on 2017 scholars or the list will be released.
Re: 2017 NDDC Foreign Msc And PhD Scholarship by Nigerdcritics(m): 9:02pm On Nov 22
Payments for students fees can be done in just a day if the criminals who run the NDDC board want to do it. I was very sure the day I said the next week these payments were coming through, however with the current board you can not be sure. It looks like they have someone who blocks the true story of this saga to get to the President, the Vice President has intervened but yet these criminals for some reasons are bent on not making payments
The process of payment have been finished but for some reasons the EDFA and the MD are holding it back.

It’s a pity

But why in God's name would they do this to us? This is truly embarrassing to the commission. My school is already hinting that they may not accept new nddc scholars anymore as this issue of delays and in some cases non payments has gone on for too long. It is truly unfortunate.

Thank you for your persistence. With NDDC, nothing is guaranteed. It does seem the payment hasn't left their office. Wire transfer is only about 2 days.

Every international embassy is fast listing NDDC as unserious organisation and are even including other innocent organizations from Nigeria!

The delay is concerning after some assurance. We would have to, one more time, speak out and voice our concern in social media before NDDC stalls the process thinking they are out of focus.

At this point I don't know what to believe anymore. Mrs Seledi (scholarship coordinator) has always been very cautious in responding to my previous queries on payments - you know, with the same sound bites 'awaiting approval.' However, this time she sounds a bit more assured, hence my hope; but gosh, we've been April-fooled before so I am not surprised it's gone back to the waiting game at this point. I did hear, but I honestly cannot verify the source so please don't take my word for it - that payments should reflect by month end (this month end). Let's see what happens but I'm on the MD's case. He can't flaunt around as if they are making progress and get away with it. Transparency my foot (you need to see how he pats himself on their 'so-called' achievements on the website, it's appalling).

Re: 2017 NDDC Foreign Msc And PhD Scholarship by viewingthistopic: 8:51am On Nov 24
The way this thing is going calls for emergency action. It's a month now since the scheme was suspended yet no timeline for payment. Few days to December and yuletide season begins with the normal low attitude to work in these MDAs during this period, one cannot afford to sit and wait on jst promises. We have to occupy and demand for answered.
