That is what most likely happened. The told us that they are processing it and in no time we will get our money for school fees. Why are Nigerians so wicked, so those of us that decided to use our local universities are fools and are less special to those that want to use foreign universities; and you wonder why Nigeria education system remains they way it is.

In fact now they have remove test, just oral interview which is subjective angry angry angry angry angry angry

Please I want to clarify an issue. I heard that each year, PTDF usually sponsors the best graduating student (OSS MSc) of the departments that PTDF are funding. (PTDF upgraded Universities like ABU, Unimaid, Unijos, UI etc).
Please does anyone here have information about it?
