Minister of Education Othman Abdul Jalil expressed his solidarity with the university students in their demands for the disbursement of their financial entitlements from the state since 2014.

"The ministry is making strenuous efforts by reaching out to all concerned parties in order to solve this issue," the minister said, expressing his understanding of the difficult conditions they are experiencing in light of not receiving any grants, according to the ministry's website.

Abdul Jalil attributed the failure to make these payments to the difficult economic conditions the country is going through.
