To address the issue, representatives of the Nigerian Students Union in the UK and Christian Okeke, the ambassador of the Nigerian Embassy in the UK, will meet with the university’s administration.

The intervention is in response to claims that Teesside University wrongfully ordered the deportation of Nigerian students while they were still enrolled in classes, mostly as a result of unpaid fees.

Abdur-Rahman Balogun, the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission’s (NIDCOM) Director of Media, Public Relations, and Protocol, verified this development in a statement.

Following a virtual discussion with Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO of NIDCOM, Okeke (Ambassador), Yemi Soile, President of the Nigerian Students Union UK, and a number of impacted students, a decision was made.

Students voiced their complaints at the meeting in the hopes of finding a workable solution.

Dabiri-Erewa pleaded with the institution to treat the students fairly and justly while advising the students to maintain their composure and refrain from taking any illegal action. These opinions were shared by Ambassador Okeke.

The goal of the Nigerian government’s participation was to guarantee that the impacted students would have a just and equitable resolution to their situation.
