38 universities hike fees: UNILAG from N14,500 to N63,500 (See FULL LIST)
At least 38 universities across Nigeria have increased their tuition fees due to poor funding by federal and state governments.
The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan Chapter, Dr. Deji Omole, stated this in a statement in Abuja on Monday.
The statement which assessed the two years of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, lamented that the government had made Nigerians poorer.
Omole said the public education was not taken seriously because “children of the rich and those in high offices” do not attend school in Nigeria.
ASUU also noted that it would be difficult for any Nigeria university to compete globally due to inadequate budgetary allocation to the educational sector.
Findings revealed that students of University of Lagos (UNILAG) who were paying N14, 500 would now pay N63, 500 as tuition fees.
Other institutions that increased their fees included the Ahmadu Bello University ( N27, 000 to N41, 00), University of Nigeria (N60, 450 to N66, 950) and Obafemi Awolowo University ( N19, 700 to N55,700).
