A beneficiary of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) international scholarship has made shocking revelation about corruption in the commision.
The beneficiary who goes by the name, Olukayode Olugbemi, revealed this in a series of Tweet on his handle, @OmoKakafiala.
According to Olukayode Olugbemi, there are 210 scholars under the scheme, as against the over 1,000 students figure which was released.
He also revealed that they have not been paid their tuition for one year now, as he reacted to Mr Jonshson’s claim on ChannelsTv that the funds had been diverted.
See what he wrote below;
Hi @seunokin, I just saw the Politics Today clip with the NDDC, where Mr Johnson confirmed that monies for scholars have been diverted. Let me make it clear that Dr Ojougboh or Prof Pondei have never visited us. The figure that we are over 1,000 students is alarming.
2019 scholars are 210 students. The leadership has not paid our tuition for 1 year. While I have been at the forefront of this struggle for our payment, I can confirm to you that we have not been paid and are very available to come up on @channelstv.
If you want, I can provide you with at least 1 Masters and 1 PhD scholar in different universities. As far as we know, Mr Johnson was correct and we are very much alive to tell our story if need be.
Olukayode Olugbemi also went on to make a video on the platform where he made more revelation.

Decided to do a video detailing some details.
This video is unedited and I'm detailing just the facts about this scholarship and haven't even included what we've had to suffer.@seunokin @channelstv @NDDCOnline @OgbeniDipo @segalink @Ladymamalade2 https://t.co/f42pkzsgox pic.twitter.com/ESQrLeWtgY
