4,000 Nigerians Schooling In Germany – Envoy

The German Ambassador to Nigeria, Annett Gunther, yesterday said that there are no less than 4,000 Nigerians schooling and working in Germany. Gunther made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Abuja.

According to her, the German Academic Exchange Service gives out not less than 1000 scholarships yearly. She said that the German government was working on improving visa approvals for intending Nigerian students to Germany. The envoy said: “At the moment, we have approximately 4,000 Nigerian students in Germany, coming and going in and out of the country and also engaging in other things.

“I know we are not yet in a position to issue the visas for the students on time, but we are working on that. We are not interested in preventing people from coming to Germany. “We want them to come. So there is also something to do on our side to improve our capacities on visa issuance.”
