American University Owes Nigerian Government $202,000


The college conceded on Tuesday that it was without a doubt owing the Nigerian understudies in the school some cash. 

The college has conceded owing the Nigerian government $202,000, being a piece of the cash implied for Nigerian understudies on grant, yet misused by the college. 

The University was sued by the thirty six Nigerian understudies in the school two years back blaming it for either abusing or misusing $800,000 implied for them and on Monday, the Nigerian government joined as an offended party in the suit. 

The college conceded on Tuesday that it was for sure owing the Nigerians some cash, agreeing alabamanews.net. 

“The agreement regarding the education of the Nigerian students dates back to 2013 and has always been between the government of Nigeria and Alabama State University, not the individual students. Since the initiation of the agreement, ASU has adhered to and complied with every instruction and direction given to the University by the Nigerian government regarding that agreement,” said Kenneth L. Thomas, general counsel for Alabama State University.

ASU has prompted the Nigerian government through a few letters that because of the University's bookkeeping in the course of the most recent four years, the legislature is qualified for a $202,009.50 credit, which was kept a year ago into a put stock in account at the elected courthouse in Montgomery, Ala. 

The University still can't seem to get a reaction from the Nigerian government with respect to the credit. It was an affirmation coming late for the understudies. 

One understudy, Success Jumbo, stood up about his experience. He said he was denied numerous things including understudy medical coverage and simply getting reading material. 

“My college experience has been ruined, because I wasn’t allowed to do things that every other college student is doing. We went as far as asking our government to give us authorization for them to release the funds to us, which they did. On several occasions, they wrote two letters, which ASU bluntly declined. This is supposed to money that has been made available for us. It’s not like we are asking him to pay us or give us monies from his personal pocket. This was monies already made available for us when we need them” Jumbo said.

The Lawyer speaking to the understudies Julian McPhillips says: 

“I hope it will sober Alabama State University up and it’s new president, to realize that what these students are talking about is very serious and it’s not only having an adverse effect on them legally, but I would think public relations wise,”
