NANS set to partner FG on budget implementation monitoring

Share This

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has called on the Federal Government to ensure that the budget allocated to the education sector in 2024 is fully implemented.

NANS’ Senate President, Mr Akinteye Afeez gave the advice in a statement issued to newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos.

He said the funds must be used to cater for everything stated and no form of indiscriminate diversion should be tolerated going forward.

He stated that part of the reason the sector had been suffering persistent setbacks over the years, aside from not meeting the global benchmark of funding, was as a result of poor implementation and inadequate monitoring.

“Having gone through the breakdown of the budget for the sector for the 2024 fiscal year, we have come to realise that a total of 8.8 per cent has been allocated to education.

“While this amount is still low compared to the immediate needs of the student community, it is also important we appreciate the Federal Government for the inclusion of the student loan, which we believe, will help our students greatly, in catering for their tuition,” he added.
