  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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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

  6. 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.

  7. By so doing this in Nigeria,a whole body like NNPC/SNEPCo but am asking what all our politician like Senators and Reps using their money for,any country that lack to sponsor their youth is in danger. Kudos to NNPC.

  8. Hmmm
    This will be an assuring experience
    I this promises are kept and fulfilled, I am very sure that the educational level of the country will be highly encouraging.
    I hope this works out.

  9. I’m very sure the educational sector of this country will improve if this promises are kept and it will also help the young lads in this country to attain a better and brighter future

    • It is a very good idea that Nigeria National Petroleum Company is using their resources in helping people attain a bright future
