Emmanuel Ogolo went on to say that the staff of the NDDC use the scholarship scheme as a way to steal the money that is supposed to be for students who gained admission to study abroad.

The Former Governor of Kano State Rab’iu Kwankwaso, however, stated that he had to resign from the NDDC in 2010 because of the numerous amount of corruption being practiced in the commission. He revealed this over the weekend. He said that his refusal to partake in the corrupt practices going on in NDDC made him resign. He stated the cause of corruption in NDDC as being greedy government officials desperate to amass wealth for themselves.
