    Yes, I said it yesterday, it’s only companies that were encouraging education in Nigeria. You see our government the only thing they can do is owing salaries and sending their children abroad to receive quality and sound knowledge since they know what they are putting in Nigeria education is not world standard.i read cowbell some weeks ago? yesterday I read bournvita and shell.. Nigeria!!
    Our government is above sky

  2. October 10, 2019

    Nice information, I wish i am eligible for this, and i hope the government can open their eyes and see that company are do what is left for them to do.

    Information about scholarships like this give students the mind to be serious with their studies and hence, it enhances competition in the learning environment, the government as the heir of the state ought to also encourage students by bringing in more scholarships. Forums into light especially to assist to who are not Finiacally buoyant enough to carry out further studies, this is the hope of the future generations.

  4. October 11, 2019

    Is a good idea to having this kind of program of awarding scholarship to students that are undergraduate in Nigeria but its should not be limits on merit alone,they should done a lot of work by fish out those student that are less privilege in order to help their education.

  5. October 11, 2019

    Thanks to NNPC/SNEPCo for creating this opportunity for Nigerian undergraduates. Like some said Earlie that our government only care about their own children. Yes they will send them abroad to study in good and popular universities while our own do not have adequate facilities to training.

    Why is it that most scholarship only benefit science students . Art students have little or no opportunity. But nevertheless I commend you, well-done.

  7. October 11, 2019

    The scholarship program is likely to favor the Science and Engineering students and left the Arts and Commercial Students out. Why? Should it be another one that will favour them? All the same is a welcome development.

  8. October 11, 2019

    I guess it’s now time for companies to start offering scholarships, people should make sure they embrace this massive opportunities
