The House of Representatives has invited the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Education, Andrew Adejo to appear before its Subcommittee on students’ Loans and Higher Education to give feedback on steps put in place by the Ministry and the presidential committee on student loans in implementing the student loan Act.
This is also as the Chairman of the Committee, Rep. Tersee Ugboh, expressed displeasure over the absence of the Permanent Secretary despite invitation sent three weeks ago, but instead chose to sent the Director Legal Services in the ministry to represent him who when asked certain question declined to have an answer to them.
He stated that the outcome of the meeting will equip the committee with adequate knowledge to further carry out a summit on the Act.
According to him, the summit will enable inputs from relevant stakeholders across boards through the memoranda presented and amendments will be compiled to the proposed Act for the benefit of students.
