• RUN VC Urges FG To Give Loans To Students.

    The Vice Chancellor of Redeemers University, Ede in Osun state, Prof.  Debo Adeyewa, has urged the Federal Government to consider granting educational loan to tertiary institution students so that they can overcome the challenges of tuition payment.

    The VC, who was speaking last Friday in the institution, said that education is expensive all over the world but the University has been subsidizing its tuition.

    He highlighted that people talk about the fact that the poor cannot access education and stated that the poor will remain poor without proper education.

    Adeyewa noted that in private universities the budget for payment of salaries exceeds all the fees that are gathered and yet infrastructure must be built.

    “We contribute even to pay fees for students; so we are actually subsidizing education; it is expensive. Now, let’s look at this, what we give to students is on the higher side because education is something that you need to give in qualitative and quantitative terms.So, what we are trying to say is that government can help by assisting, by giving education loans to students to assist them”, he explained.

    According to him, many private universities in the country do not make profit, yet, have to provide infrastructure, quantitative and qualitative education.

    Professor Adeyewa added that the private universities deserved some kudos for rescuing the quality of education  in Nigeria.
