PDP chieftain reacts to Tinubu's student loan scheme

President Tinubu signed the amended student loan bill into law on Wednesday, April 4, after it was passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate, respectively.

The PDP chieftain said:

"The student loan is like, "I take five things and give you one." You removed subsidies, destroyed our currency, increased customs duties and electricity tariffs, caused inflation, and later introduced insufficient student loans. That’s evil.
"Nothing else but evil, and I believe if this was how life was when those in power were growing up, most of them wouldn’t even make it to the top as they are destroying a lot of homes with their inexperience, cluelessness and incompetence.
