Staff of the Sierra Leone High Commission in Abuja on Friday March 16th 2012 visited the Sierra Leonean Post Graduate Students Studying Masters in Petroleum Engineering at the World Class African University of Science and Technology in Abuja (AUST) , Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Students were very happy upon seeing the Sierra Leone Embassy Staff led by His Excellency Henry Olufumi Macauley. After fruitful discussions with the Students who explained some of their problems that were taken to consideration, the High Commissioner encouraged them to keep the candle burning and exercise patience.

It could be recalled that, in May 2010, the Sierra Leone High Commission submitted a proposal to the Directorate of Technical Cooperation in Africa {DTCA} of the Nigeria Ministry of Foreign Affairs for funding a project “Capacity Building” for twenty [20] Sierra Leonean Post Graduate Students in Petroleum Engineering for strategic Senior Management roles in Energy, Oil and Gas Industry in Sierra Leone.

However, the Nigerian Government  approved the funding for twelve [12] Post Graduate Students in Petroleum Engineering at the African University of Science and Technology {AUST} from the Nigerian Technical Cooperation Fund {NTCF} at the African Development Bank {ADB}.

The Sierra Leone Ministry of Education Science and Technology advertised the Course programe and many Students applied and they were shortlisted. In the selection process, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology brought down conditions such as considering First Class and Second Class Masters Degree Holders. As such, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology finally selected the best twelve [12] Post Graduate Students to pursue the Course. Coincidentally, Edwin Sam-Mbomah Jnr., son of the Deputy High Commissioner, Maj. Gen. [Rtd.] Edwin Sam-Mbomah of the Sierra Leone High Commission in Abuja was among the best Students, having submitted with a First Class.

The twelve [12] Post Graduate Students were divided into two [2] Batches of which the first batch of six [6] started on January 9th, 2012 whilst the second batch is on the waiting.

Meanwhile, the Six Students are as follows; Edwin Sam-Mbomah Jnr., Arnold Warren Nottidge, Yusuf A. Lahai, Desmond Allie, James Koker and Harold A. Kallon.
