The process for accessing the student loan programme of the Federal Government will be seamless, officials said yesterday.
According to them, there will be no human contact. Everything will be automated, they said.
Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of the Students Loan Board, Dr Akintunde Sawyerr, who spoke to reporters at the Aso Villa after meeting with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, explained that funds for successful students will be transferred to the schools’ accounts.
The scheme has been widened to accommodate young Nigerians interested in acquiring skills outside tertiary institutions.
Sawyerr spoke to reporters along with the Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Dr Zacch Adedeji.
