Palliative ranging from free buses to and fro in the campus, food items and cash support to vulnerable students, and several other yardsticks.

Meanwhile, i categorically stated some of the basic requirements attached to Students loan which will deprive majority from accessing the loans, while we seek and call for review of source policy in other to be so effective upon it implementation. Also, we foresight the possible consequences that increase in school fee charges for both federal, state and private tertiary institutions in the state can possibly cause to students, our parents and/or sponsorer, while we condemn any form of increment in school fees in order to avert the aftermath effects that can occur among the Nigerian students. Because if perpetually their is such increase, it may lead to high drop out rate, this will be stand against at all time.

In a tone of finality, i urge the security agencies to promote the good relationship with the apex students body in the state (NANS) and task them to reach out to all necessary quarters to ensure that their will be no further increment in our school fees, provision of more palliatives to students and support in form of palliatives to all government workers and all other citizens of the state to join the submission of the Chairman of NLC and TUC of Kwara State.
