Student Loan Portal to Open May 24th.


The federal government has announced Friday, May 24, 2024, as the official date for “the opening of the portal for student loan applications.” The announcement was made in a statement by the media lead for the Nigerian education loan fund, (NELFUND) Nasir Ayantogo.

Ayantogo, in the statement, said the opening of the application portal marked a significant milestone in the commitment of president Bola Tinubu to “fostering accessible and inclusive education for all Nigerian students.

“Through the portal, students can now access loans to pursue their academic aspirations without financial constraints.

“The portal provides a user-friendly interface for students to submit their loan applications conveniently.”

“We encourage all eligible students to take advantage of this opportunity to invest in their future and contribute to the growth and development of our nation.

“Students can access the portal on to begin application,” the statement read.

The portal, according to the statement, provides a user-friendly interface for students to submit their loan applications conveniently.

When he signed the bill that created the funds, President Tinubu had said it was a new beginning for the education system in the country. The president said “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 drop out of college and give 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.”
