A statement signed by the president of NUGS, Daniel Oppong Kyeremeh said some of its members in the diaspora have been left stranded.

“The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has recently been inundated with numerous complaints from our members in the Diaspora regarding the non-payment of fees and stipends by the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat,” NUGS said in their statement.

“Several students under the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat are currently facing significant challenges due to the delay in receiving their fees and stipends.”

The student welfare body said the delay in payment of fees and stipends has led to Ghanaian students on scholarship abroad being denied their certificates.

It also noted that some of the students were struggling to renew their visas, with all attempts to engage the Scholarship Secretariat on the matter falling through.

NUGS, therefore, appealed to the Scholarship Secretariat to take steps to address the issue, which has left several students abroad in distress.

“Despite numerous attempts to engage with the Scholarship Secretariat, NUGS has regrettably encountered persistent difficulties in communication and resolution.

“NUGS earnestly appeals to the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat to promptly address this matter by expediting the payment of fees and stipends for our students in the Diaspora.

This crucial financial support is indispensable for the academic progress and overall welfare of our members,” the statement added.
