    ABU supports 34 students for China Engineering Scholarship

    The Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) has supported 34 of its students with N10 million to study first degree and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Engineering in China.

    The University’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ibrahim Garba made the disclosure at a farewell reception organised for the benefiting students held at Samaru, Zaria, Kaduna State.

    The Nigeria News Agency reports that the Engineering programme is a special arrangement where the benefiting students spend three years at Central South University (CSU), Changsha, China and come back to ABU, Zaria to spend two years.

    reports that the new programme would enable the students earn dual degrees of China and Nigeria in Traffic and Transportation Engineering respectively.

    Garba said: “This time around we actually invested quite a lot;  we paid over N10 million to freight you to China and this is public money that is paid from the school fees of everybody.

    “So bear in mind that you are going on public funds partly, and then of the scholarship of the Central South University.

    “This year unfortunately CCEC has declined to support but I think it is a matter of time;  it is as a result of lack of fulfillment of obligation by Nigerian Government in their contract, which two days ago, that contract had been signed.”

    He, however, expressed optimism that by next year, CCEC would come up with another scholarship so that another 40 or so students would benefit.

    The VC said: “Let me congratulate this second batch of our students that are departing to Central South University (CSU), China.

    “By no means, you have also become part of the chosen ones that are going to utilise this very unique opportunity that has come our way in Nigeria and ABU in particular.

    “So far, we are very happy to have realise that the first batch that we sent have not disappointed us, they have actually made us very proud by performing very well, living very well, respecting the traditions and situations in China.

    “And by so doing, Chinese are appreciating and respecting Nigerians at least for the first time, yes, because our brothers and sisters that have found their way to China in many respects ended up bringing shame to Nigeria,” he said.

    While reminding them that they were not the first set to be there, the V-C said they had a lot of experience to gain from those that went there before them.

    In his speech, the Director, Directorate of University Advancement, Prof. Ahmed Adamu, recalled that in the last few years the Federal Government had invested huge amount of resources in building the railway.

    He described the collaboration between China and Nigeria as an opportunity to reform the nation’s railway transport system.

    The don charged the students to take full advantage of the unique opportunity to be educated toward building a vibrant nation.

    Speaking on behalf of benefiting students, Malam Aliyu Kasimu, said that there was a similarity between China and Nigeria, adding that China is the most populous country in Asia while Nigeria is the largest in Africa.

    Kasimu promised to make good use of the opportunity to make not only ABU proud but Nigeria as a whole, assuring that the gigantic efforts of the university would never be in vain.

    Foundation gives 33 students scholarship, 15 women get grants  

    The Lateefah Moyosore Durosinmi Foundation (LMDF) on Wednesday gave scholarship to 33 students and grants to 15 women engaged in small scale businesses in the six states of the South West Zone.

    The founder of LMDF,  Dr Lateefah Durosinmi, made the award of scholarship and grants public at the annual  scholarship awards and grants ceremony of the foundation in Ibadan.

    Durosinmi said she was passionate about children’s education and empowerment of women in the society.

    She said that the award of scholarship to pupils and students in public schools as well as grants to women began in 2013.

    According to her, most women are always struggling in the society because they are not economically empowered.

    ” We must assist women to develop the society and as well as the youths to develop their talent

    “Some of the students have been running away from school because their parents don’t have money to sponsor them.

    “I’m happy now because most of them are now back in school because of this scholarship,” Durosinmi said.

    While delivering her lecture entitled, “Women Empowerment-A Panacea To Poverty,” Dr Habeebah Oladosu, said assisting the less privileged remained the only solution to eradicating poverty in Nigeria.

    Oladosu, a lecturer in the Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies, University of Ibadan, said women would be able to give the right education to their children if they were empowered.

    The don said that there would never be development in a society where women are neglected.

    Dr Amdalat Olaniyan, the wife of the Deputy Governor of Oyo State, commended the foundation for its initiatives and urged the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the money.

    Two of the beneficiaries, Mrs Sidikat Ajibuwa and Aderemi Abdulsalam, commended the foundation and prayed for its progress.

    210 graduates bag NDDC foreign scholarships

    No fewer than 210 graduates of Niger Delta origin on Friday received scholarships under the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Post-Graduate Foreign Scholarship Programme.

    NDDC’s Acting Managing Director, Prof. Nelson Brambaifa, handed the award letters to successful candidates, according to a statement issued in Port Harcourt by the commission’s Director of Cooperate Affairs, Mr Charles Odili.

    Brambaifa told the beneficiaries during a pre-departure and orientation briefing to utilise the opportunity given to them to better their lives and those of their family members.

    Represented by Mr Gochua Okejoto, NDDC Director for Education, Health and Social Services, Brambaifa said NDDC had made huge investments to deepen knowledge and skills among the youth.

    “The beneficiaries are the new generation of well-trained professionals who will help take the Niger Delta to the next level.

    “This group are the future; people whose professional competences and exposure will fill the gaps in the oil and gas industry.

    “They will also fill gaps in infrastructure development, information technology, agriculture and aquaculture, thus sustaining livelihoods that are important to creating wealth and abolishing poverty,” he said.

    Brambaifa said the commission had improved living standard of the people by making them become more creative, effective and proactive for the region’s economic growth.

    The NDDC, he said, began the scheme in 2010 with the objectives to bridge gap in the management cadre of the oil and gas sector and address dearth of capacity among the youth.

    “So, we have so far produced 1,634 component and better qualified youths, who are bringing their new learning to bear in different sectors of the region’s economy.

    “There are many heart-warming stories, outlining the excellent Niger Delta spirit – which have emerged and will continue to emerge from this important intervention.

    “For instance, five of our Masters’ Degree students graduated with distinction from Coventry University, England and one from Aberdeen University.

    “Mr Ubong Peters, a PhD student, won the three minute thesis competition in Australia while Augustine Osarogiagbon of Memorial University of New-Found-land, Canada, completed his PhD in less than the stipulated time,” he said.

    The NDDC boss added that Charles Igwe, a PhD student in Canada, saved the Montreal Area Municipality over $1 billion by redesigning the TURCOT interchange road construction, which reduced the project cost to $3.67 billion.

    Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Mr Nelson Ologhadien, thanked NDDC for ensuring that the selection process was fair and transparent.

    Ologhadien, who is going for a doctorate degree at University of Dundee in Scotland, assured the commission of their good behaviour during their stay abroad.
