    1. Hello Ijeoma,
      You can contact DESOPADEC using their contact form and am sure they will have a better answer for you.
      Thank you for commenting.

    2. Generally, it is believed that part time students are students who are already engaged in an employment to which they earn income while furthering their education. So they are excluded from such benefits as they are regarded as income earners.
