Nigerian officials meet with students


Share post:

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL of Nigeria’s Delta State, Charles Ajuya, as well as the commissioner of education, Charles Emetulu, met yesterday with the 80 Nigerian students still in Barbados.

Accompanied by Donna St Hill, organiser of the student programme here, the two officials met first for about three hours with the students housed at Casa Grande Hotel, and separately for a similar time with the other seven who have moved to St James.

It is understood that they assured the students at Casa Grande that they would be allowed to remain in Barbados and undertake studies for a year. The seven have been resisting an order from the oil-producing state to return home.

When a MIDWEEK NATION team approached the officials at the Beach Club, where the meeting with the St James seven was taking place, they declined to be interviewed. (MB)
