President Bola Tinubu has today signed the National Students Loan Amendment bill into law.

The president signed the bill in a short ceremony at the state house in the presence of the deputy senate president, Barau Jibrin, the minister of state for education, the minister of state for youth, other government officials and aides to the president.

Speaking afterwards, the president said, “ First of all, I must thank members of the National Assembly for their expeditious handling of this bill considering the children of Nigeria, that education is the tool to fight against poverty effectively.”

“We are determined to ensure that education is given the proper attention necessary for the country including skills development programmes. This is to ensure that no one, no matter how poor their background is, is excluded from quality education and opportunity to build their future.”

This development came after separate considerations from the two chambers of the National Assembly committees on tertiary institutions and TETFund.

The president had initially signed the student loan bill into law back in June 2023, to offer financial assistance to Nigerian students in tertiary institutions but its implementation faced numerous delays due to various issues hindering its rollout.
