The Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) says it has onboarded twelve (12) more state government-owned tertiary institutions to the student loan application portal.

NELFUND Spokesperson, Nasir Ayitogo announced the development in a statement issued on Wednesday, July 10, 2024.

Ayitogo explained that the expansion came following the successful submission and verification of data completeness and accuracy required from the institutions.

“With this latest addition, the total number of participating state government-owned tertiary institutions has now increased from the initial 36 announced earlier to 48. Students data from 121 institutions is outstanding.

“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 His Excellency, Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke for his exemplary leadership in this regard.

“The Fund urges 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.

“It also urges states whose data has been captured and successfully uploaded to urgently sensitise their students to apply, thereby bringing succour to students who are struggling financially whilst also bringing guaranteed revenue to the institutions”, he said.
