The Federal Ministry of Education has described the scholarship list that is being circulated on social media under the caption “Justice to one is justice to all” as purely a handiwork of mischief makers.
*Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education*
The Ministry spoke through a press release dated September 2, and signed by the Director, Press and Public Relations, Ben Bem Goong.
The statement reads in part,
“The attention of the Federal Ministry of Education has been drawn to a fake list circulating on social media platforms under the above caption and to the effect that the Federal Ministry of Education has approved scholarship for the listed candidates under the 2020 Bilateral Education Agreement.
“The Ministry wishes to state that the list which has been partly extracted and manipulated from the application received by the Ministry only for awards obtainable for Russia, did not emanate from the Ministry and is purely the handiwork of mischief makers.”
“The Ministry therefore said that the authentic list of all the scholarship awardees from 2009 to date is available on its website for members of the public to access.
“It further said that the conclusion of the 2020 has been delayed due to impact of Covid 19 and will be uploaded on the Ministry’s website as soon as the exercise is concluded.
“The general Public is hereby advised to disregard the fake list being circulated to embarrass the Ministry or with the intent to dupe unsuspecting candidates. I am to add that candidates will be contacted directly by the Federal Scholarship Board and the awarding/host countries on their selection.”
