It has come to the attention of the Delta State Government that some unscrupulous person or group of persons have set up a fake website http://dsbsb.dl-gov.ng and are calling on students of Delta State of origin in tertiary institutions to register for Students Special Assistance Scheme (SSAS) with the sum of N1,000 (one thousand naira), as processing fee payable online.
It is stressed that the Delta State Bursary and Scholarship Board is the only Board permitted by law to handle any issue relating to Students Special Assistance Scheme (SSAS) in the State with the official website http://dsbsb.dl.gov.ng.
It should be noted that the Delta State Bursary and Scholarship Board is currently paying students the 2015/2016 bursary. However, the Board is waiting for the Governor’s approval to enable the Board to open the website for the 2016/2017 registration exercise.
For the avoidance of doubt, the fake website ends with -gov.ng, while the real one ends with .gov.ng.
Parents, guardians and students of Delta State origin are advised to take note of the Delta State Bursary and Scholarship Board website and be guided so that they don’t fall into wrong hands of dubious persons who want to cash in on the ignorance of the students to dupe them of their hard earned money.
For further enquiry, candidates can call the following telephone numbers 08032780074 or 056290617.
