  1. Why is nddc and other oil companies discriminate against the social scientist and the humanities in giving scholarship opportunities to students? when will the social scientists and humanities be equally considered as their counterparts in the sciences? please,kindly consider us for both foreign and local postgraduate scholarship.Thanks.

  2. I have send some emails from Ministry of Niger Delta Development of the Arc. Alexander Okenwa – Director – Project Monitoring and Supervision (PMS).
    He say me than they want to buy some cover laptop.
    Pls, someone from this Ministry tell me if this order is correct.
