FG To Sponsor 100 First Class Graduates Abroad by withinnigeria: 8:54am On Dec 29, 2014

MINISTER of Education, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, has said the Federal Government is set to sponsor 100 first class graduates for further studies abroad.

He spoke on Sunday in Kano during a media interaction and an awards ceremony.

Shekarau said the100 first class materials would be sponsored under the Special Presidential Scholarship Programme.

According to him, President Goodluck Jonathan has instructed the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) to select the best graduates and secure admissions for them to study up to doctorate level in universities abroad.

“President Jonathan instructed that best students should be screened all over the country irrespective of their locations for scholarships outside the country,” he said.

Shekarau said the first batch had been screened and would soon leave the country to study in the best 25 universities in the world.

The minister said as part of the government’s effort to provide Nigerians qualitative education some university lecturers had been sponsored for various training locally and abroad.

“The lecturers will study both within and outside Nigeria under the Tertiary Educational Trust Fund (TETFund).

Really... undecided


What about the scholarship students languishing in penury in various parts of the world?



They shouldn't start what they obviously cannot finish.. Because the next thing we are going to hear about is how Nigerian first-class students on overseas scholarships are demonstrating over non-payment of their stipends... Then the clueless one will set up a 'high-powered committee' to look into their complaints, which will at worst, be miserly addressed.


All these last-minute propaganda won't stop us from voting Buhari into Aso rock come 2015 angry

SAI BUHARI

Re: FG To Sponsor 100 First Class Graduates Abroad by Akbee(m): 9:38am On Dec 29, 2014
interesting... however, we r not ignorant of the devices of the enemies of progress.the proposed scholarship scheme is only meant for those with connections.the poor ones wl be left out.Nepotism has left us where we are not suppposed to be.
besides those who are opportuned to be included are likely to be abandoned by the home government..no stipends.i hope they wl go there with a truck load of garri,yam n other food items cos hungar wl soon knock on their doors..
may God help Nigeria..
