In a bid to ease the burden of the fuel subsidy removal on students of higher institutions of learning, President Bola Tinubu has approved the provision of buses to the students’ bodies of all universities, polytechnics and colleges of education across the country.
The President also approved the removal of all restrictions on the students’ loan to make it available to any student or household that may desire it.
In addition, President Tinubu directed the authorities in all Federal Institutions of higher learning to avoid arbitrary increase in sundry fees payable and where possible defer further increase so that parents and students don’t face too many difficulties.
The Federal Government salutes the courage, wisdom and partnership of Nigerian Students as our country navigates this challenging time.
President Tinubu will continue to prioritise education and the needs of the students, improve welfare of teaching and non-academic staff and invest in infrastructure to make our institutions of higher learning become more globally competitive.
