The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has given a 48-hour deadline to schools that have not yet uploaded or completed uploading their students’ information on the Nigeria Education Loan Fund (NELFund) portal, called the Student Verification System (SVS).

NANS has warned that if the schools do not comply, there could be negative consequences. In a statement released on Monday, NANS President Lucky Emonefe mentioned that NELFund has set a deadline of July 12, 2024, for the submission of students’ information.

He expressed concern that many students might miss the chance to get loans because their schools have not submitted the needed information to NELFund. “NANS is not happy about this situation. It shows that the affected schools are not committed or acting quickly enough. It’s upsetting to see that some schools are not using this important opportunity for their students,” he said.

Emonefe urged the management of these schools to focus on uploading their students’ information to the NELFund portal before the deadline. He stressed that education is a basic human right and every student should have access to financial help to continue their studies.

He added that NANS would keep a close eye on the situation and urged the remaining schools to make sure all students have the chance to benefit from the loan program. “We will not sit by and let any student be denied access to education because of administrative negligence.

“If the schools do not provide the needed information to the NELFund portal within the next 48 hours, we will have no choice but to take action against the non-complying schools,” he warned.
