Falana sues FG over failure to establish education bank

By ABDULWAHAB ABDULAH

LAGOS – Lagos lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana, has instituted an action against the Federal Government, before a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, asking the court to direct the government to establish Nigerian Education Bank for indigent students which will provide them financial aid.

He also wants the court to declare that the failure or refusal of government to establish the Nigerian Education Bank was illegal and unconstitutional and a violation of  sections 1 and 4 of Nigerian Education Bank Act (Cap N104) LFN 2004.

He argued that the refusal of government to give support to deserving Nigerian undergraduates fall short of its responsibility.
