12 More State Institutions Submit Data For Student Loan

The management of the Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) has announced the onboarding of an additional twelve (12) state government-owned tertiary institutions to the student loan application portal.
With this latest addition, the total number of participating state government-owned tertiary institutions has increased from the initial 36 announced earlier to 48, while student data from 121 institutions is outstanding.

A press statement issued yesterday by Nasir Ayitogo, the head, media and public relations of NELFUND said the expansion comes following the successful submission and verification of data completeness and accuracy required from the institutions.

“Whilst paying a courtesy call on His Excellency the Governor of Osun State in Oshogbo on Tuesday, NELFUND Managing Director, Mr. Akintunde Sawyerr, expressed his immense gratitude to all who have submitted their data so far, and gave special recognition to the governor Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke for his exemplary leadership in this regard,” the statement said.

It also urged all institutions that are yet to submit their students’ data to the Student Verification Portal (SVS) of the fund to kindly do so to enable their students’ benefit from the scheme.

This is just as it asked state-owned institutions whose data has been captured and successfully uploaded to urgently sensitise their students to apply, thereby helping students who are struggling financially and guaranteeing revenue to the institutions.
