Speaking at the 36th Session of the State House Briefing, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs who led a delegation, disclosed through its Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Gabriel Aduda.
He said that other countries with similar curricula to Ukraine have offered Nigerian students, whose programmes were interrupted by the Russia-Ukraine Conflict admission, to complete their studies either online or physically.
According to him, all admission processing will be conducted through the Nigerian missions to authenticate students who were previously enrolled in various programmes in Ukraine.
He said Nigeria still maintains good diplomatic standing with Russia in spite of its condemnation of Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine.
Former President of the United Nations General Assembly, Tijjani Muhammad- Bande further assets that Nigeria is willing to accept educational opportunities from Russia because both countries are not at war and there is the need to strategize a balancing act that is synonymous with diplomacy.
