The Students’ Solidarity Group Against Fee Hike has criticized the indefinite suspension of student loans by the Federal Government, stating that there was no such loan available.

 

Femi Adeyeye, a spokesperson for the group, said that even if the loan was introduced, it would not be accessible to the masses.

Recall that the group had previously warned that the fee hike would turn students into compulsory hustlers.

Adeyeye accused the government of attempting to deceive students into accepting the commercialization of public education.

He argued that the government should fund education directly rather than increasing fees by over 600 percent.

Also, he revealed that many students were dropping out of university due to financial difficulties, and that the standard of education was dropping significantly.

“It stabs logic in the head that a government that has money for a loan scheme will rather increase fees by over 600 percent, instead of funding education directly.

“How do you make life miserable for citizens and then tell them that the lie of a help that you promised has been suspended indefinitely?

“As we speak, droves are dropping out. At UNILAG and schools alike, many have missed exams already. A class of 140 students, only about 80 sat exams. Others are missing, just as we predicted. Those who managed to pay half or full are under real stress of debt. See the story of Shina who went missing to find school fees:”

“He’s one out of many who are still “missing” out there. Students selling items on campus are now being threatened with expulsion by the UNILAG management. We warned that the fee hike will turn students to compulsory hustlers and the standard of education will drop significantly. We’ve been proven very correct.” He said.
