A group of 179 students who received the Bilateral Education Agreement (BEA) scholarship for the 2023/2024 academic session in Russia are scheduled to depart from Nigeria on Wednesday.
During the Pre-departure briefing, Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, urged the scholars to return to Nigeria after completing their studies to contribute to the country’s progress. He emphasized the importance of upholding good values, focusing on their studies, and representing Nigeria positively abroad.
Mamman commended the awardees, highlighting Nigeria’s significant investment in them and expecting them to use their education to benefit their nation upon their return. He reminded the students not to take this opportunity for granted, noting that they were chosen from among thousands of applicants.
Representing the Minister, Hajia Rakiya Gambo Iliyasu, the Director of Tertiary Education in the Federal Ministry of Education, advised the scholars to respect the laws of their host country and support each other throughout their educational journey.
“Most importantly, you need to make your presence known to the Nigerian Embassy in Moscow. This is very necessary based on our experiences from Ukraine.,” he added.
