Three beneficiaries of the Nigerian government scholarships to study abroad under the Niger Delta Amnesty programme have bagged First class honours in UK universities.
Eighteen others got Second Class Upper (2:1).
Nicholas Goodness and Terubein Fawei who graduated from the University of Bedfordshire finished with first class honours in public relations, telecommunication and networking engineering respectively.
Lucky Azibanagein also graduated with first class in mechanical engineering and Robotic system from the University of Liverpool.
In an event organised by the Nigerian High Commission in the UK, on Friday, the Coordinator of Presidential Amnesty Programme, Paul Boroh, congratulated the graduates for making Nigeria proud.
He restated President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment towards ensuring that the amnesty programme is sustained and its desired goals achieved.
“President Buhari is ever ready to implement the blueprint upon which the amnesty programme was established. The era of impunity and phoney contracts are gone for good,” Mr. Boroh said.
Mr. Boroh, a retired General of the Nigerian Army, also called on other militants such as the Niger Delta Avengers to emulate the militants who “laid down their arms to embrace education that can make them indispensable to the world”.
He cautioned the ‘economic saboteurs’ to embrace dialogue and support Mr. Buhari on his agenda to develop the Niger Delta region.
Apart from the three that bagged First Class, 18 other students in various UK universities from different disciplines also graduated with second class upper division.
