Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The management of Student Loan Trust Fund on November 21, 2019, made public the first batch of loan defaulters whose arrears dated as far back as 2010.
In a series of posts on his Facebook posts dated November 25, 2019, Agbana disputed the credibility of the list and stated emphatically that he does not owe SLTF and will not sweep the issue under the carpet as a mere mistake.
The post read; “I do NOT owe the Student Loan Trust Fund (SLTF). I have INSTRUCTED my lawyers to take the necessary legal actions against the fund for maliciously publishing my name among the list of loan defaulters.
I will NOT treat my inclusion in the list as a 'Mistake' as they are seeking to suggest, because I strongly believe it is a DELIBERATE ATTEMPT to tarnish my reputation. This cannot be a mistake. My lawyers will take the necessary actions. For the records, let me repeat it unequivocally that I DO NOT OWE the SLTF.”
New Patriotic Party’s communicator Awal Mohammed was also captured in the above-mentioned list of loan defaulters.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the deputy national youth organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Eric Edem Agbana and Awal Mohammed of the NPP have been captured as part of the thousands of Ghanaians who benefitted from the students' loan scheme.
Now, it appears both men are refusing to pay back after leaving school.
The duo were among the first batch of defaulters which was published by the Students Loan Trust Fund on Friday, November 22, 2019.
