Tinubu signs Student Loan Bill into law

PRESIDENT Bola Tinubu on has signed into law the Student Loan Bill.

President Tinubu at the brief ceremony, said the main aim of the new law was to ensure that Nigerian children are not denied the right to education which he described as the tool to effectively fight against poverty.

He said, "I have just signed a bill proclaiming the student loan effectively. 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.

"We are here because we are all educated and were helped. In the past, we have seen a lot of our children dropped out of colleges and given up the opportunity. 

"That is no more, the standard and the control is there for you to apply no matter who you are as long as you are a Nigerian citizen."
