NASS legislative agenda will enhance standard of living – Akpabio


Senate President Godswill Akpabio said the legislative agenda of the 10th National Assembly will result in a tremendous improvement in the standard of living of Nigerians.

Akpabio said this in Abuja on Monday at the public hearing on the Student Loan Access to Higher Education Repeal and Re-enactment Bill 2024.

The public hearing was organised by the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and Tetfund and the House of Representatives Committee on Student Loans, Scholarship and Higher Education Financing.

Akpabio, represented by the Deputy President of the Senate, Barau Jibrin, commended President Bola Tinubu for his foresight and uncommon passion in supporting Nigerian students with the loan scheme.

He said the scheme would address the problem of lack of funding among Nigerian students.

Akpabio said the opinions of all stakeholders would be considered to have the best legislation for the re-enactment of the act.

“I wish to urge you to freely express your views and opinions, either for or against the subject of this hearing, in a manner that will bring about the sustenance of our collective will to be together as a nation to call ours.

“Public hearings are one of the primary legislative processes that offer the general public and especially relevant stakeholders the opportunity to contribute their quota to law-making.

“There is no doubt that your views at this joint public hearing will go a long way in assisting the committee to make informed recommendations to the Senate and the House of Representatives.

“It is the submissions and recommendations of the committees that the Senate and House of Representatives will rely on to make relevant laws for the good governance of our citizens,” he said
