NELFUND expands student loan access to 12 more state-owned institutions

The Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) has announced the inclusion of twelve additional state government-owned tertiary institutions to its student loan application portal, marking a significant expansion of the scheme.

This disclosure was contained in a statement signed by NELFUND’s Head, Media and Public Relations, Nasir Ayitogo.

According to the statement, the development follows the successful submission and verification of required data by these institutions.

With this latest addition, NELFUND revealed the total number of participating state-owned tertiary institutions has increased from 36 to 48. However, data from 121 institutions are still pending.

During a courtesy visit to Governor Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke of Osun State in Oshogbo on Tuesday, NELFUND Managing Director Mr. Akintunde Sawyerr expressed gratitude to all institutions that have submitted their data.

He gave special recognition to Governor Adeleke for his exemplary leadership in facilitating this process.

NELFUND urged institutions that have not yet submitted their students’ data to the Student Verification Portal (SVS) to do so promptly, enabling their students to benefit from the loan scheme.

It added that the fund called on states whose data have been captured and uploaded to sensitize their students to apply, thereby providing financial relief to struggling students and ensuring guaranteed revenue for the institutions.
