President Bola Tinubu’s administration, through the Nigerian Education Loan Fund, has announced May 24, 2024, as the official date for the opening of a portal for student loan applications.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the media lead of the Fund, Mr Nasir Ayitogo on Thursday night.

According to Ayitogo, the move marks a significant milestone in the commitment of Mr Tinubu to fostering accessible and inclusive education for all Nigerian students.

The statement reads, “The management of Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) led by its Managing Director, Mr Akintunde Sawyerr are thrilled to announce 24th of May, 2024 as official date for the opening of portal for student loan applications.

“This marks a significant milestone in the commitment of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR) 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 www.nelf.gov.ng to begin application.

“For more information and assistance, please contact NELFUND via email on info@nelf.gov.ng or contact us via our social media handles.”
