According to Alake, the loan initiative was part of what Tinubu promised during his electioneering campaigns.
 
“Today, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has just signed the Student Loan Act. This is just in fulfilment of his promise during the electioneering campaigns, where he promised that students would access loans to go to school,” he said.
 
Reacting to the development via his verified Twitter account, Sani insisted that tying down student with loans is unconscionable.
 
He wrote, “Most of those occupying the positions of power and authority were beneficiaries of free education and free scholarships.Tying down students with loans is unconscionable.Let’s not forget that We are still a developing country.”
