Students at the sit-in told Jo24 that the ministry “did not include all applicants who met the criteria as , under the pretext that the financial allocations were not available”.

Some students, they said, have been denied grants and loans despite the fact that their families are low-income.

Participants in the sit-in raised banners emphasizing their right to education, with some signs reading: "education is also for the poor". The students also delivered a letter outlining their demands to the ministry.
