Speaking further, he said being a new program, there would be some grey areas of the bill that would need to be reworked, saying CONUA was ready to partner with the government to make the students’ loan scheme a success.


The meeting also discussed various salient issues about the state of affairs and welfare of the Nigerian academics and resolved that the government should as a matter of urgency attend to the issue of salary upgrade and conditions of service of members of the academics and other sectors of the economy.

CONUA believes in the capacity of the administration to provide the visionary leadership for the sustainable, progressive development of all facets of the nation.


“We therefore assure of our readiness to partner with this administration by generating and making accessible ideas and suggestions that will take, in particular, our educational system from its current state to a pedestal that we shall all be proud of. “Together, we will work to engender renewed hope in Nigeria and create the conditions for the fulfllment of the noble aspirations of the citizenry
