The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, have asked that students who are indigenes of Rivers, and are studying abroad on scholarship should return home, as the state is no longer financially buoyant to continue paying for their education.
See letter below….
Th new policy, dictates that the affected students should return to the University of Port Harcourt and the Rivers State University of Science and Technology under full scholarship of the Rivers State Government.
Students who are in their finals already are spared from the new policy that apparently would break the hearts of many. But the students in other levels are called back home.
