Nigerian students, who are beneficiaries of the scholarship programme by the Niger Delta Development Commission, have staged a protest at the Nigeria High Commission, United Kingdom, over the non-payment of their tuition by the NDDC.
The NDDC had in September sent a delegate to the UK to verify the academic status of scholars, who benefitted from its scholarship programme.
However, weeks after the conclusion of the verification exercise, the NDDC is yet to commence the payment.
Some students, who spoke with SaharaReporters, said they have been ejected from their homes and are unsure of where their next meals would come from.
They also said their academic transcripts had been seized due to the non-payment of their tuition.
Two of the students had their studentship in the Universities of Coventry and Leeds revoked last year because the NDDC failed to pay their registration fees while many of them were logged out of their school portals.
The scholars urged the Presidency and the National Assembly to mandate the NDDC to ensure the payment of 2018 set as they were at risk of forfeiting their certificates.
