We write to inform the Presidency, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Education, Parliament of Ghana, and stakeholders of Student Loan Trust Fund (SLTF) that, the SLTF is not in a good condition to pay it beneficiaries for 2019/2020 academic year.
Persuant to our Press release dated, 27th January, 2020, of which a lot of things concerning the well-being of Tertiary Students who are beneficiaries of Student Loan Trust Fund (SLTF) were enumerated. The said release was responded by the management of SLTF on 28th January, 2020.
On Paragraph 3 of their press release (response), the management of the Trust fund stated it categorically that, there has been a delay in the release of funds from the outfit of GETFUND and also the Ministry of Finance to the Trust Fund. The current situation of Student Loan Trust Fund, looks uninspiring, and does not inspire hope in us as beneficiaries.
As a coalition, we ask the Ministry of Finance and the management of GETFUND to immediately release funds to SLTF so that it can pay it beneficiaries. We are given the Ministry of Finance and aslo GETFUND, 5 working days to respond to our issues and also do the needful or else, we will advise our selves as Students in the coming days.
We will also take this opportunity to plead with the President to intervene immediately because some Tertiary Students are going through hell.
