The students who are beneficiaries of Bilateral Education agreement with Russia, a scholarship initiative of the Nigerian government managed by the Ministry of Education, which provides funding for undergraduate and postgraduate studies in selected countries, accuse the federal government of failing to keep their promise in paying their stipends, which has been left unpaid since October 2015.
