PTDF Provides International & Local Scholarships To 9,659 Nigerians

Since its creation, the Petroleum Technology Development Fund claims to have trained 9,659 Nigerians through its overseas and in-country scholarships.

The Executive Secretary of the PTDF, Dr Bello Gusau, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Monday that the beneficiaries had obtained first degrees, master’s degrees, and doctoral degrees.

According to Gusau, the PTDF granted these scholarships to applicants from the United Kingdom, Germany, France, China, and Malaysia under the strategic guidance of its fund.

He said the fund supported students and recipients from all key disciplines in the oil and gas and energy industries, including engineering, geosciences, environmental studies, computing, and management.

“This has accelerated the upward shift of local content contribution to the industry, enabled knowledge transfer, and fueled the development of indigenous research and the expansion of Nigerian businesses,” Gusau added.

He stated that the fund’s first priority was to impart knowledge to others, both in the public and private sectors, in order to generate specialized indigenous human capital that would eventually replace expatriates.

Since its founding in 2002, the PTDF has committed hundreds of millions of dollars to sponsoring Nigerians on various training programs, according to the fund’s CEO.

“Under the requirements of the Public Information Act and other extant legislation, any interested person can access information connected to the fund’s spending, as reflected in our audited reports,” he confirmed.

Gusau responded to the perception that many students who received PTDF funding to study abroad never came home, negating the objective of the investment, by saying that the recipients were expected to return and contribute meaningfully to national development.

He went on to say that the scholarships were designed to prepare Nigerians to work in and contribute to the country’s oil and gas industry, either directly or indirectly through academia.

“While we are not opposed to our awards staying in their countries of study for a period of time to gather relevant experience, we expect PTDF grantees to finally return to Nigeria and contribute their fair share to national development.”

“Awardees, particularly at the PhD level, chosen from academia and industry, are bonded to ensure that they return to the country and their places of employment following their studies,” he noted.
