Nigerian students studying in private universities in Turkey has been said to benefit waiver of tuition fees that were to be paid before schools were closed down.
The Turkish government closed down private universities and other establishments operating in the country following last month’s failed coup in the country.
Turkish Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Hakan Cakil, stated this when he visited The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, in his office in Abuja.
Mr. Cakil, according to a statement issued by the ministry’s Deputy Director, (Press), Ben Bem-Goong, said Nigerian students in private universities in the country have been moved to public schools for them to continue their education.
“Following the coup attempt in Turkey which led to the closure of many private Universities, Nigerian students studying across Turkish private varsities which have been closed down have now been moved by the Turkish Government to public schools in that country where they will pay very little or no tuition fees at all,” the statement said.
