Nigerians studying at BIMAP


Added 19 April 2015


THE 70 NIGERIAN students who were once stranded in Barbados, have finally begun full-time schooling.

Two weeks ago they registered at the Barbados Institute of Management and Productivity (BIMAP) Wildey, St Michael.

They have enrolled in a six-month course in entrepreneurship and the programme is being funded to the tune of $750 000.

They are being accommodated at Casa Grande Hotel, St Philip. They were part of a group of 87 from the Delta State Youth Empowerment Program in Delta State Nigeria who arrived here in December 2014 to undertake hospitality studies at the Barbados Community College.

However, that never materialised and their stay here has been riddled with controversies relating to the accommodation, schooling, health, money and other issues. (MB)
