83 NIGERIANS ON MORROCAN SCHOLARSHIPS DEPART FOR STUDIE

About 83 Nigerians awarded with Morrocan scholarships will be departing Nigeria on November 23 and 24, 2023.

The Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mammam presided over the departure of Morocco Scholars at a pre-departure briefing in Abuja advised them to make their parents and Nigeria proud by being worthy Ambassadors in the country of their studies.

The Scholarship is under the Bilateral Education Agreement (BEA) 2023/2024 academic session.

The first batch of Scholars are scheduled to take off today while batch 2 will be leaving tomorrow.

The Minister said the scholars had successfully completed the Mandatory Nine (9) Months French Language Training Programme at various Centres “Alliance Francaise” in Nigeria for the 2022/2023 academic year and now fully prepared for departure to Morocco for their main academic courses for the 2023/2024 academic session

He said their success in being chosen as scholars for the programme is a reflection of academic brilliance as well as the efforts of their Teachers and parents.

He said their selection as scholars is part of a broader plan of deepening the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu which ensures that brilliant Nigerians, especially those that cannot afford to study programmes that are not readily available in Nigeria, are supported to get necessary knowledge, skills and competences that would be useful in Nigeria’s development agenda.

The minister added that the number of Nigeria’s development partners have increased and many of them now offer scholarship to Nigeria. The active countries include Hungary, China, Russia, Algeria, Romania, Morocco, Serbia, Mexico, Egypt and Venezuela, others not very active include Macedonia, Poland, South Korea, Greece, Japan and Turkey,” he said.

He further advised them not to see the opportunity as freedom and begin to do things that would be a disgrace to Nigeria.
