Speaking on the programme, Ngelale said the President would introduce the historic National Student Loan Programme on Thursday of this week.




He said: “This is a major form of obligation reduction for Nigerians and families and young people at a time when Nigerians are feeling the pinch. We believe this is the way to go.”




Tinubu signed the Access to Higher Education Act, 2023 into law on June 12, 2023.




The purpose of the measure is to make interest-free loans available to students for educational reasons.
