The officials of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Tuesday met with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the Presidential Villa in ABuja.

Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting, President of NANS Mr Usman Baranbu said the students urged the President to review the constitution of the special committee that will oversee the new Nigerian Education Loan Fund to include their representatives.

He said the students specifically called for the inclusion of past national leaders of NANS and the exclusion of lawyers and lecturers.

“We have outlined the clauses that we are not too comfortable with. And part of them is the issue of that board that we mentioned to the President, which we said at least students representatives should be captured and there are some some organisation that they put there, which to us, they don’t need to be there.

We gave him an example, most especially the Nigerian Bar Association, ASUU. ASUU have their own microfinance bank running their own affairs without students on their board. So I don’t think it’s wise for us to allow them to be inside our own board because it is purely students.

“We are the major stakeholders of that bank. So I don’t think allowing them to be there is good. Not only them, we mentioned a lot of people that they should remove and put more of student-oriented organisation,” he said.
