Russia Offers Scholarships to 107 Nigerian Students
According to the Nigerian embassy in Moscow, 107 Nigerian students who got scholarships to attend Russian universities as part of the Nigeria-Russia Bilateral Education Agreement (BEA) were received there.
On Friday, this was revealed in a statement.
The programs, according to the Nigerian ambassador to Russia, Abdullahi Shehu, who welcomed the scholars at the airport, will allow the transfer of knowledge and technology to Nigeria as well as develop bilateral ties between the two nations.
According to Mr. Shehu, the chance for Nigerian students to attend numerous Russian colleges on scholarships demonstrates how well Nigeria and Russia have cooperated in the area of education.
The ambassador assured the student of the embassy’s support and urged them to behave well.
“I congratulate you and wish you luck in your studies,” Mr. Shehu continued. In order for us to schedule you for a passport renewal, don’t forget to get in touch when your passport is nine months away from expiring.
Russia is safe and secure, but you must act properly, the ambassador said. Be aware of the company you choose to keep.
Mr. Shehu counseled the students to manage their stipend responsibly.
“Because it’s so cold, you need to take care of yourself. Avoid exposing oneself to the cold. You must understand that you are starting to construct your future from this point on, and that anything you accomplish from this point on will help you have a very wonderful life and contribute to building both yourself and our nation,” The ambassador also added that “the most crucial quality I would like you to exhibit is unwavering patriotism, he continued. Consider yourselves Nigeria’s representatives in Russia. Whatever you do will reveal something about the nation’s character. You must therefore present a positive picture.”
