Another round of protest is about to take place on Monday in the UK, over the inability of the Niger Delta Development Commission agency to pay the tuition of 94 post-graduate students.
The 94 post-graduate students are under the Niger Delta Development Commission foreign scholarship in the United Kingdom.
The plan of the students is to march to Nigerian High Commission in London to express their displeasure over the inability of the commission to offset their fees.
Concerns were raised by the Niger Delta Students’ Union Government, Negba Goodness that the planned protest was a continuous embarrassment to the country the President.
Goodness further reacted to the situation by calling on the NDDC to pay up the fees in order to save the country from further international embarrassment.
He said, “We are surprised that the NDDC has refused to pay the remaining 94 students on its scholarship even after verification. We knew that the verification was an excuse to escape the payment.
“Unfortunately, those scholars have decided to protest again at the High Commission in London from Monday (today). This is a continuous embarrassment to the nation and deceit to the collective sensibilities of all Niger Deltans, who know that the funds are there to settle these students.
