He added that in order to reciprocate their good gestures, Nigeria has also offered scholarship awards to China and Romania in the past and hopes to reactivate the gesture as the country and others indicate interest.

The Minister, while urging the departing scholars to represent Nigeria with pride and make the most of their educational opportunities, also advised them to adapt to the new cultural environment, abide by local laws and regulations, and connect with the Nigerian Embassy in Rabat for support and guidance.
