38 Nigerian Universities Increase Their Tuition Fees (See Full List)

In a statement released on Thursday by the Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) – the University of Ibadan chapter, Dr. Deji Omole, no fewer than 38 universities across Nigeria have increased their school fees.

According to reports, the latest increment might be attributed to poor funding by the federal and state governments as ASUU poorly rated the President Muhammadu Buhari in the area of funding of university education.

ASUU also noted that it will be difficult for any Nigeria university to effectively compete globally with the attitude of Buhari not to allocate enough budgetary allocation as prescribed by UNESCO to fund education.

The statement which assessed the two years of Buhari in office, lamented that the current government had made Nigerians poorer, adding that public education was not taken seriously because most children of the rich and those in high offices do not school in Nigeria.

  1. That means, people will not go to school na. Or Is it by force? The society should sit and see how criminals will multiply in number; where eating twice a day is a big problem now, not to mention using such amount for schooling..

  2. government should look into this issue and return this feel to the normal feel,the increment of the feel is too high so government should call them in order this is getting out of hand.

  3. I really wonder where this country is heading to, how do they want people to meet with that. the painful part is that the private school, the Church members that contributed for the building of the school cnt even send their children to the school.. what do we call this?
