Tinubu states, “My government will not shirk its responsibilities in this area.

We will guarantee that educational institutions receive the necessary resources to carry out their statutory responsibilities effectively. One of my first actions as President of Nigeria was to sign the Student Loan Bill into law to put this into action.


“Under my leadership, and as I have outlined in my manifesto, no student will be forced to drop out of school due to an inability to pay tuition.”
