The House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora Affairs, has said it will invite the Governor of Central of Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, the authorities of Debt Management Office, DMO, and the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC as well as the Ministry of Education to explain why most of Nigerians studying abroad on scholarships were facing hardship.

The House Diaspora Affairs Committee has also said it was going to invite the authorities of the Nigerian Amnesty Programme to find out whether Nigerians studying abroad especially in Russia and other countries were being paid since money was earmarked for their scholarships abroad.

This was the position of the Rep Rita Orji-led Committee when a Nigerian businessman in South Africa reported to the committee the humiliations Nigerians were facing in the country.
