  1. 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

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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. 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.
