‘I Doubt If Student Loan Scheme Will Be Run Without Corruption’ – Obasanjo Makes Appeal To President Bola Tinubu | MarvelTvUpdates

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed reservations about the Student Loan Scheme of President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

It was gathered that Obasanjo while speaking at the inauguration of a building at Bells University’s College of Postgraduate Studies in Ota, Ogun State, urged Tinubu to include students of private universities among the loan scheme’s beneficiaries.

Obasanjo, the proprietor of Bell University of Technology, opined that the loan scheme was crucial to the development of society and the welfare of the citizens and that excluding a group of people would be counterproductive.

The ex-president, however, raised doubts about the scheme running without recording corrupt practices.

He said, “The Vice-Chancellor has spoken about the need to include students in private universities as beneficiaries of the Student Loan Scheme. 

I urge the government to listen to that and take heed to include them too. I doubt if the scheme will be run without corruption, that is another matter entirely.”
