Nigerian embassy in Moscow in a statement on Friday said it received 107 Nigerian students who gained a scholarship to study in Russian universities under the Nigeria-Russia Bilateral Education Agreement (BEA).

The Nigerian ambassador to Russia, Abdullahi Shehu, while receiving the scholars at the airport, said that the programmes would strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries and facilitate knowledge and technology transfer to Nigeria.

He further stated that the opportunity to study on scholarships given to Nigerian students at various Russian universities indicates successful cooperation in the field of education between Nigeria and Russia.

Congratulating, the ambassador assured them of maximum support of the Nigerian embassy, urging them to be of good behaviour, and to be prudent in spending their stipends.

“I congratulate you, and I wish you well in your studies. In respect to the renewal of your passport, whenever your passport is getting to nine months to expire, you should not forget to reach out so that we can book you.

“You must take care of yourselves because it is extremely cold. Do not expose yourself to cold. You must know that you are beginning to build your future from here, and what you achieve from here will help you to live the very good life and will help to building yourselves and building our country.

“The most important thing I will like you to demonstrate is absolute patriotism. You should see yourselves as the ambassadors of Nigeria in Russia. Whatever you do will reflect on the character of the country. So you have to portray a good image.”

The ambassador stated that Russia “is safe and secure, but you have to behave yourself. Know the kind of company you are going to keep.”
