Nigerian Student Attempts Suicide In U.K As NDDC Backs Down On Scholarship by Nobody: 9:48am On Mar 27, 2017
A student from the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria who is on scholarship in the United Kingdom, reportedly attempted suicide as the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), who were supposed to fund his scholarship failed to keep their promise.

According to Twitter user, @ensydave, who alleged the incident occurred last night in Birmingham, the student whose photo will be made available soon, has been on debts, with no maintenance fee for almost a year. He also begged Silverbird group CEO and Nigerian Senator, Ben Murray Bruce, to raise awareness on the issue.

Why start what you can't finish?NDDC should please continue to assist the students already on scholarship and put a stop to the scholarship program thereafter.

Nigeria is just too funny to be called a country.

You placed people on scholarship and then you wake up one day and put a hold to it. Saner minds would seize taking in fresh candidates and see off the old ones before putting an end to the program. But naija got to be naija.

Maybe that student is a son of a fisherman in one Niger Delta Creek, with no where to turn to.

Oh what a country!

Sentiment apart or Patriotism, Nigeria is failed Nation, most times I ask myself on what foundation was this nation built, I have found two answers egocentrism and ethnocentrism these two have given birth to corruption, nepotism, incompetent leaders and undevelopment
Meanwhile @BjDreamchaser(m), Please stay away from this post, Only intelligent and mentally sound folks should view it

After we start to wonder why other countries treat us anyhow.

So if applying for a school now, how much weight does a letter of sponsorship from the govt carry now in the applications process?

ACTUALLY IT IS VERY WRONG FOR NDDC TO STOP THE PAYMENT.
HOWEVER THE GUY MUST BE VERY STUPID TO THINK OF COMMIT SUICIDE,
MANY OF US LAGOSIANS (YORUBAS) TRAVELED TO UK WITHOUT ANY SCHOLARSHIP (ONLY STUDENT VISA), WE WORKED AND PAY OUR SCHOOL FEES
HE MUST BE A VERY LAZY GUY, ANYWAY THAT IS THERE PROBLEM FROM THAT PART OF THE NIGERIA,
THEY NEVER LIKE WORK, MANY OF US DID SECURITY JOBS, JUST BE READING AND CHECK CCTV ONCE A WHILE IN THE NIGHT AND GO TO SCHOOL IN THE DAY.

I'm sure the student didn't attempt any suicide...just a quicker way to get people's attention. Meanwhile NDDC no try.
