The management of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife has debunked media report that it has increased its tuition fees.
A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr. Abiodun Olarewaju, who urged parents and guardians to discountenance the report stated that the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Tope Ogunbodede, has not contemplated on increasing any fee in the institution.
According to him, although there may be paucity of funds from the
federal government in running the Institutions of higher learning, which might have prompted some Universities to upwardly review their fees, OAU has not contemplated such.
Olarewaju posited that there is no meeting, either of the University
management or Senate, where the fee increment was announced, saying the present administration is poised to making the welfare of staff and students a topmost priority.
