I lay claim to no source, and I claim no connection to any top man, but if this week runs out and scholars are not paid, then something is fundamentally wrong with NDDC and the scholarship process. For those NDDC agents who are on this platform to test the waters for their masters, by flying the kite of cancellation of the 2017 scholarship process, pls tell your masters that there is a legal process called mandamus,which some of us will not hesitate to take. You can not cancel a process which has been completed, to go and start a fresh process. How do you then justify the millions spent to conduct that process. They should equally know that there exists a contractual relationship between NDDC and the applicants which is enforceable in law.

I too am awaiting payment this week as has been rumoured. With respect to cancellation, I doubt that info is correct - it seems ridiculous to go through the rigours of another selection process (which is not cost effective on both sides) as you have rightly pointed out. I have other sources that have said contrary to what was asserted on this forum, 2017 selection process has not been cancelled (suspended yes).

I had to call a Professor friend currently on Sabbatical leave at the commission today and he told me that the 2017 list is still very valid. He also said that the Directors assured him that the list is still valid and that they were trying to mop up cash to clear outstanding arrears owed to older scholars before anything further is done on the 2017 list. Lets still keep hoping!

I won't bite with the name calling, but can you please tell me how putting the 2017 list on hold affects payment of arrears to past scholars going by what you have said.The 2017 set is not requesting for payment yet at least until the payment shortfall has been sorted, we just want the list to be released, so we are rest assured that we will be mobilised later when the Micky waters settle, so putting one and two together what stops the list from being released? Why can't the minister approve it's release in communique to the MD? You tell me, because the idea behind it is that it is over and done with from a withdrawal perspective. Please tell me.

[quote author=sethmelia002 post=62874837][/quote]

@sethmelia002 The 2017 list was put on hold because of the back logs from previous sets. The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs stated that clearly. I don't know why you are trying so hard to convince people otherwise as if you are in a better position than the Minister. On or about September 2017, there were a lot of Articles written in the Punch and Vanguard by people who stated that it was unwise and unreal for NDDC to release 2017 list without clearing backlogs. I am guessing the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs must have read one of these articles and aligned himself with the views of those people. You are saying that they should have released the list even if there was no money. How can you release a list when there is little or no money? Before now, NDDC used to deny these scholars by calling them fake. But now they are mandated by the Minister to cater for them. That is why they are stuck. The money they would have used for us has to be used to settle back logs and that makes sense. A cancellation of the list makes no sense at all. There wouldn't even be a 2018 scholarship application until past scholars have been paid. What is the point of releasing a list when there is no money to pay scholars? They are trying to avoid what happened years back.

I get your drift, but what is wrong in showing extra commitment to the 2017 set by releasing the list and advising when award of scholarship will be processed pending the settling of past shortfall. Should there be an issue with that? My friend this is already December the first set of intakes for the coming year commences in January and I am sure the NDDC management is fully aware of this so what stops them from making an extra commitment if the process isn't already jeopardised.
Re: 2017 NDDC Foreign Msc And PhD Scholarship by un48table: 8:58am On Dec 02
so the supposed cancellation was just from your perspective and understanding of the whole thing, not from any concrete fact or evidence? You should have let us know it was your thought, and not saying the whole thing as if you were 100 percent sure of the cancellation.

If you read carefully from previous post its just me trying to let you all see the reasoning behind their decision .I tried to answer the questions I was asked but decided to respond with some level of explanation as to why the decision was made.Not necessarily a rhetoric but a brief analysis.]
Re: 2017 NDDC Foreign Msc And PhD Scholarship by ladybug2: 4:05pm On Dec 04
NDDC is a joke. Now I have inquired about the status of payments, the officials are singing a new tale. The sound bite is now 'we are waiting for management to release funds.' So all the waiting and expectations were for nothing. It is disheartening why NDDC has chosen to treat us this way. I have been bombarding all involved on twitter and will erode their timelines until they do something. This is just pure evil and they won't get away with it.
Re: 2017 NDDC Foreign Msc And PhD Scholarship by amhot: 8:30pm On Dec 04
Hello @ladybug, I feel your pain and that of other scholars. These NDDC officials are just shameless, and the APC government that put them there, don't care either. I really feel ashamed that I campaigned and voted for the current government.

You don't mean it! So they have backstepped. I heard the MD isn't happy with the recent election in his state. He may just decide to take out the vengeance on us.

But, what business is ours with what politics he is playing? He just need to function like an efficient managing director he is paid to do and to deliver on public trust given to him.

This is the 18th month without a dine from NDDC!

It is very clear that Nsima has embezzled the scholarship funds, and keep on claiming that he has been carrying out audit. The 10k for transport allowance is he till auditing it ? , after collecting peoples account details without even communicating them again. I am sure he will soon meet his Waterloo

I Hope the management keeps to their word of resolving these issues by next tuesday. However, despite the press statement, the meeting with Hon. Abike Dabiri shld go on where all issues ranging from late award of letters,transport mobilization allowance prior to departure and late payment of fees and upkeep shld be addressed. Scholars need to sit with the authorities to discuss matters as it affects their welfare and success of the scheme.

Sent scholars secretly� embarassed na wa oh, i hope this is not true. What kind of heartless leaders are these people? What exactly are they auditing for 1 whole year. Ordinary results of the CBT was not published because of magomago...........the truancy is just too much. If u call any of the nddc board members they will even block ur number, send text messages they will ignore. No student loan in this country, even when you collect the loan where will you see better employment to pay back? Please if you know any good nursing school inform me let me change my career and open my own clinic or birthing centre, since na almost every day women dey born.
