A delegation, to be led by a representative of the Nigerian Embassy in the UK, Amb. Christian Okeke and leaders of the Nigerian Students Union in the UK, will visit the management of Teesside University to intervene on the allegations of an unfair and unjust deportation order served on some Nigerian students in the middle of their studies.
The decision was taken at the end of a virtual meeting held between Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), representative of the Nigerian High Commission UK, Amb. Christian Okeke; Mr Yemi Soile, President, Nigerian Students Union UK; and many of the affected students at the meeting on Sunday.
According to a statement on Wednesday by Abdur-Rahman Balogun, spokesman of NIDCOM, the affected students passionately narrated their ordeal and were optimistic about a positive intervention.
During the meeting, Chairman NIDCOM appealed to the students to remain calm and not to take laws into their own hands while appealing to the University to treat the students with justice and fairness.
On May 22, some students of Teesside University from Nigeria staged a protest following the directives by the University authorities for them to leave the UK on the allegations that some of the students defaulted in paying their school fees.
