The Bola Tinubu-led Nigerian government has reassured the public that it is taking steps to prevent the planned strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). In a meeting with the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), the Chief of Staff to the President, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, emphasized that the government is committed to ensuring that no indigent student will be denied access to the upcoming government student loan program.

Gbajabiamila urged Nigerian students to speak out against critics of the Student Loan Funds policies, emphasizing that the scheme aims to provide equal educational opportunities for all students, regardless of their background. He also mentioned that President Tinubu has issued directives to put an end to the strike by academic unions in universities and higher institutions.

"We are aware of the possibility of another ASUU strike, and we are actively working to address the concerns raised. Our President is determined to eliminate the days of strikes and move forward. We hope to be able to avert any future strikes," Gbajabiamila stated.

He further mentioned that the government is striving to launch the student loan scheme within the next two to three weeks, ensuring that all policies are carefully reviewed and finalized to avoid any loopholes.

Once implemented, the student loan scheme will become a significant legacy of the current administration. Gbajabiamila urged the support of Nigerian students in making the policy successful, emphasizing that it aims to provide equal opportunities and ensure that no student is deprived of education due to their circumstances of birth.

Additionally, Gbajabiamila commended the presence of youth representatives in the Federal Executive Council and announced that the government is working on establishing a Youth Advisory Council. This council will provide guidance to the President on youth-related matters and contribute to the development of policies aimed at empowering the youth.

"We appreciate the two comrades among you who are representing the youth in the cabinet. We are actively working on establishing a Youth Advisory Council that will advise the President on youth matters and other initiatives focused on youth development. We are hopeful that this will come to fruition soon," Gbajabiamila concluded.
