At the occasion, Governor Wike declared that the state government will partner with private investors to promote tertiary education in the state.

The governor also announced a grant of N500million for the newly established Pamo University of Medical Sciences to support the development of the school and its students.

What's the interest of Gov. Wike in this private University that he has to announce a grant of #500m. How much has he given to Uniport (a federal university) and UST (the state university) as grants?

Peter Odili has continued to be a major beneficiary of Rivers State funds even after leaving office. Well, it appears it's time for Wike to show gratitude for Odili's support during the days of yore!

This is gross insensitivity. Acting to the gallery. How does he fund the state university with and other higher institutions in the state despite all the looting by Odili. Is the PAMO University not from the state funds allegedly stolen by Odili.

Where does Wike get all these monies he's throwing around? He seem to be using state funds to buy people's hearts and win friends for himself.

Sent overseas on Medical Scholarship by the Government of Rotimi Amaechi. Abandoned by the Government of Governor Nyesom Wike.
Helpless Rivers State students cry out for help!!!!!
------

We, the sixteen final year medical students and 7 recent medical graduates of the University of Debrecen Medical School, Hungary, under the sponsorship of the Rivers State Government (RSG), were awarded scholarships via the now defunct platform, Rivers State Sustainable Developm

.....Development Agency (RSSDA), to study Medicine in 2012 during the Governor Rotimi Amaechi-led administration.
Contrary to claims by the current Rivers State administration, we have no political affliations. We are just young people trying to better our

......lives and become productive members of the society.
This scholarship was awarded to us based on merit after series of rigorous examinations and personal interviews. A contract was signed by both parties, thereby binding the government to provide our tuition fee, living expenses

......and book allowances for the full extent of our studies, spanning a minimum of 6 years.
In 2015, the Governor of Rivers State, Barr. Nyesom Wike, asked for students under the aforementioned scholarship to be sent back home to Nigeria due to insufficiency of funds to continue the

......sponsorship. We were offered to be placed in Nigerian universities but these promises were never actualised as plans were never made by the government to book flights and obtain admission into these schools.
We have spent 49 months (4 years and 1 month) fending for ourselves.


.......We have undergone untold hardships, been sent out of our apartments and have run into huge debts in our bid to survive. Our University has been gracious enough to allow us continue our studies despite our enormous debts, with the condition that our certificates will be withheld
......until our debts have been paid in full.
We currently owe our university 4 academic years worth of tuition and are owed 48 months worth of stipends. This is a lot of money. It is practically impossible for any of us to raise such huge sums on our own.
Being in a foreign country
.......
far away from home, and having no funds being sent to us for the past 4 years has come with a lot of challenges including: studying for difficult medical exams – of which we were not even sure we would be allowed to take, while being hungry, depressed, starved for many days; some
........
sleeping outside in the cold in winter; others with the fear of being evicted by landlords, just to mention a few.
We've made several efforts to communicate with the governor directly and indirectly, through several media outlets, our parents back at home have held meetings with
........several relevant personnel. Television and radio interviews have been granted at various media houses, all to no avail. The governor has made several promises to complete the payment for all medical students on the scholarship and has even gone as far as making claims to lure
.......people into believing that these debts have been cleared off, however, this is false.
Our University and the Rivers State Government are currently in court over the non-settlement of these debts and this case has dragged on extensively. This is why we believe it is a ploy by the

........Government to maintain our silence throughout the period of the forthcoming elections.
It is important to note that without our certificates, we would not be allowed to practice medicine anywhere in the world, not even in Nigeria, therefore, we are using this medium to call
.......
on well meaning individuals, organisations, the Rivers State Government and the President of Nigeria to come to our aid, as it is pertinent that our tuition and stipends are fully paid.
We would be very grateful for any assistance rendered by anyone regarding this issue and we
........are more than happy to provide any further information needed.

Thank you. #strandedrssdadoctorsindebrecen
