It would be recalled that over 2000 Niger Delta youths drawn from South-south states are on scholarship in various universities abroad in a massive human capacity development programme of the Federal Government.

In a lawsuit filed recently before the U.S federal court, the 41 Nigerians who are now Alabama State University alumni accused their alma mater of overcharging them for books and meals because they were black foreigners.

They alleged that the school enrolled them in classes they never took, and deliberately siphoned millions from a scholarship fund set up by the Nigerian government that was paid in advance for every exchange student.

“They called us cash cows. I’m a black man and I’m proud to be black, but I felt discriminated against,” said Jimmy Iwezu, one of the 41 ex-students. Others include, Godsgift Moses, Promise Owei, Thankgod Harold, Success Jumbo, Savior Samuel.
