The plea comes after scholars under the Niger Delta Development Commission scholarship scheme staged a protest at the Nigerian High Commission in London for non-payment of tuition fees and other accrued allowances by the commission.
At the recent probe of the NDDC by the National assembly, It was revealed that Nigerian students awarded scholarships to some universities in the United Kingdom, have been abandoned by the commission as they have not received a dime in allowance or school fees from the commission.
While the deadline for payment of the fees of some of the students has expired or about to expire, non-payment of their allowances has virtually turned many of them to beggars.”
