The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has directed the Federal Scholarship Board to process the payment of scholarship stipends to Nigerian students studying in Russia.

Mr Adamu gave the directive when the Nigerian Ambassador to Russia and Belarus, Steve Ugba, paid him a working visit in his office in Abuja.

According to a statement from the education ministry on Thursday, Mr Adamu said the government would prioritise the welfare of the students in the diaspora.

Mr Ugba said the Nigerian embassy in Russia has contributed immensely to the wellbeing of the students in Russia.

Premium Times reported that the federal government owes over 12 months’ allowances to Nigerian students on a federal government scholarship.

The students were sent to study abroad under the Bilateral Education Agreement of the Federal Scholarship Board (FSB) programme, a parastatal of the federal ministry of education.

The scholarship is awarded to different cadres of students (undergraduate and postgraduate) who are sent to countries with which Nigeria has such bilateral agreement.

Under the bilateral agreement, the host countries take care of the students’ tuition and accommodation, while the government of the mother country (in this case Nigeria) takes full charge of the students living allowances, which is to be paid monthly.

Countries involved in such educational understanding with Nigeria include Russia, Morocco, Algeria, Serbia, Hungary, Egypt, Tunisia, Turkey, Cuba, Romania, Ukraine, Japan, Macedonia; Mexico, and South Korea.

Safe learning environment
Also in a separate statement, the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, said the Nigerian government would continue to ensure safe learning environments for all students in the country.

He said the government would no longer tolerate bullying in schools.
