Against the backdrop of the growing concerns that tertiary institutions in Nigeria might be hiking their tuition fees on the heels of the recently passed Students Loan Act, the House of Representatives on Thursday warned the institutions against such a move.


The green chambers also resolved to convene a legislative summit in the coming weeks on student loans and access to higher education with all stakeholders in the education sector.


This resolution followed the consideration of a motion moved at plenary by Terseer Ugbor, the member representing the Kwande/Ushongo federal constituency of Benue State.


Presenting the motion, Ugbor said the aim of the act was to enable students to borrow to fund their education, away from the traditional parental provision.
