Cultists, certificate forgers,drug offenders not eligible for Student Loan – FG warns

The Nigerian government has announced that individuals convicted of forging certificates, drug offenses, involvement in cult activities, and other crimes are not eligible for the federal government’s student loan scheme, Education Loan Fund (NELFUND).

This information was revealed in a post by the administrator of the student loan scheme on its official social media handle on Friday.

The post clarified some frequently asked questions by potential applicants.

Others whose application would be rejected include anyone “proven to have defaulted in respect of any previous loan granted” by any licensed financial institution and anyone “found guilty of submitting fake/fraudulent documents and dismissed for exam malpractices by any school authority.”

The application portal for the first phase of the student loan scheme, which is available to students from federal institutions nationwide, was opened by NELFUND on Friday.
