[Breaking] Students’ loan: FG makes u-turn on beneficiaries from state institutions

The Federal Government said students of state government institutions will also benefit from the government education loan scheme.

The Managing Director of the Nigerian Education Loan Fund, Akintunde Sawyerr, made this known during an ongoing press briefing in Abuja on Thursday.

He noted that the scheme will be made available to students of state universities in the next three weeks.

According to him, the website of the student loan fund has received over 60,000 visitors since its launch.

Sawyerr also noted that over 90% of federal institutions have submitted the list of students, noting that only two federal universities and two federal polytechnics are yet to do so.
