Mr. Unyime Idems is an example in humility. If you say he was not born with any spoon at all, you may not be too far from the truth.

JUST IN... Excitement, as NDDC Resumes Post-Graduate Foreign Scholarship

  • Published in News

Prospective students from the Niger Delta are excited that the Niger Delta Development Commission has concluded plans to resume the Post-Graduate Foreign scholarship to qualified indigenes of the region.

The Commission, while announcing the resumption of the scholarship scheme, conveys its regrets at the cancellation of the inconclusive 2017 award process, noting the inconveniences suffered by students who applied for the scholarship.
To provide a fresh start and a seamless process, all outstanding tuition for recipients of the scholarship has been cleared, as part of the restructuring instituted by Management, and calls for new applications from qualified candidates for the 2018 programme. (However, any student who has proof that he has not been paid should feel free to contact the Commission immediately).

The advertisement for the new programme will be published in national media, as well as the commission’s website.
Established in 2010, the NDDC post-graduate foreign scholarship is designed to produce top level professionals with technical manpower, capacity and expertise who would compete in the oil and gas industry and other sectors of the Niger Delta region.
Worth about $30,000 per annum, it is helping to build a knowledge-based economy that will meet the challenges of globalisation. It covers nine professional disciplines such as engineering, medical sciences, computer science technology, geosciences, environmental sciences, agriculture, environment/oil and gas law, as well as project management.
Altogether, 1,409 students have benefited from the programme, including Charles Igwe,  whose unique redesign of the Turcot Interchange road, as a Ph.D student of Construction Engineering at Concordia University, Canada, helped save the Montreal Area Municipality over $1 billion, and Mr Ubong Peters, who won a global three-minute thesis competition.

Also joining the fold of the APC in Bayelsa state is the Special Adviser to Governor Dickson on Grassroots Development, Asari Mangite and his supporters.
