The Zonal Coordinator of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Ibadan Zone, Dr Ade Adejumo, on Tuesday alleged that the Federal Government was making attempt to make students of federal universities pay a minimum of N350,000 for tuition fee.
He said this while talking to members of the Correspondents in , Ibadan. He said it is compulsory for ASUU to let the public know that there could be labour crisis soon in the federal universities in nigeria, adding that the proposal led to the breakdown of the 2017/2018 renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement.
“The union was confronted with a situation where the government is bent on imposing tuition fees, beginning from N350,000, on students in the Nigerian public-owned tertiary institutions. On the question as to how the students will raise such money, the answer that government has is that it will establish an Education Bank, where students will access credit facilities and payback on completion of their studies.”
We hereby say congratulation to all federal universities students in Nigeria.
