We Haven’t Discontinued Sponsored Education Scholarship Awards -PAP

By John Ovie
The management of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) has refuted the allegation making the rounds on major news platforms about the discontinuation of  PAP sponsored formal education scholarship awards.
The refutal was contained in a statement signed and made available to our correspondent by Mr. Thomas Peretu, Special Adviser to the Interim Administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Major Gen. Barry Ndiomu.
The statement, however, confirmed that the programme had only suspended the award of fresh scholarships to potential beneficiaries.
Peretu said “a statement  signed by the Technical Assistant to the Interim Administrator, Flt Lt Terry Ajobena (rtd), it was clearly stated that all delegates on formal education, both onshore and offshore remain bonafide beneficiaries and will continue to enjoy approved privileges attached to thier various scholarship schemes.
“The statement  affirmed that the current suspension is as a result of PAP’s financial situation  due  to  debts incurred by previous  formal education scholarship awards and other commitments. The  statement added that the suspension will be lifted as soon as these obligations are cleared.
“Beneficiaries are thereby implored to be undistracted as PAP is still committed to its earlier  obligations.”
