UI Plans to Increase School Fees

The University of Ibadan, Ibadan, is considering raising school fees for both returning and fresh students, as well as increasing accommodation and studio/practical fees. This decision comes as a result of the university facing financial challenges due to reduced subvention from the Federal Government and the rising cost of running the institution amidst inflation.

According to a reliable source, the university’s management recently informed student representatives and other stakeholders about the proposed fee increment during a meeting held on Friday. However, the specific amount for accommodation and other fees for both fresh and returning students was not disclosed.

The meeting was chaired by the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof Kayode Adebowale, and attended by other key officials including the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Administration, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academics, The Registrar, the University Librarian, and the Dean of Students.

  • If Nigerian Governors should sop deceiving the masses with freeprimary and secondary education., it’s high time the reintroduction of school fees in primary and post primary schools be made. Otherwise, structural decay in these institutions would continue in perpetuity.
