  1. Please can I register for the Addax Petroleum Development (NIG) Limited scholarship without admission letter, because the admission letter is not processed yet also without any ID cards. Pls kindly reply. Thanks

  3. i wonder the criteria addax used in shortlisting successful candidates of the apptitude test cos i was so angry wen i saw the list of which only 89 out of the thousands that wrote the exams were comfirmed successful. i dont think this is fair at all. they should try and create room for more students cos WE NEED THE MONEY!!!!!!! pls we need transpiracy and due process thanks.

  4. the list is in the paper not the website. ADDAX are wonderful set of organisation, for them to shortlist thousand of candates just to give only 89 out them. I think its high time this nation has to seat up to fight this kind of great injustice.
    so many candidate risk their lives in order to write the exams just for only less than 1% to be given the scholarship.
    i think this pple are up to something that undergraduate do not know-

  5. when will the addax petroleum scholarship 2011 edition begin? It is interesting to know that this scholarship has held a lot of students, and more students are clamoring to get registered for. Please I want to know so that I will not be caught unaware, thanks. (07038460848)
