“She gets the stipend every month whether she is in Nigeria or London”.
“Just two days ago, I was at home with her and I asked her if she has received her stipend for this month. She said no so I told her to have patience that she will get it the next day since that day was a public holiday in Nigeria”
“I also encourage her to save out of it and I’m happy that she is doing that”
