Vice chancellor of the University of Jos (UNIJOS) Prof. Sabastine Maimako has justified the recent increase in tuition fees saying the administrative cost of running the institution forced the management to increase the fees of undergraduate students to N45, 000.

Before the increment, undergraduate students of the university were paying N25, 000 as tuition fee per annum. Although the vice chancellor disclosed that the increase would take effect from next academic session, parents and guardian of students have condemned the development.

Maimako at an interactive session with the parents and stakeholders said since the monthly subvention from government was no longer realistic, the university has to look inwards and find means of sustaining the institution.

He stated that the increase is aimed at providing conducive learning environment and teaching materials for the students. The Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) Prof. Nelson Ochekpe and the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration), Prof. Theresa Madu, told the stakeholders that the institution would soon set up a tracking system to notify parents and guardians about the performances of their wards.

During an interactive session, the stakeholders commended the institution’s management for providing the platform which they said was quite informative about the university activities.
