Penpushing further reports that the tuition was less than N100, 000 before the management increased it last academic session, agreeing with the students that it would be reduced the next session, while the registrar said the university management was still meeting with the stakeholders over the increase in tuition in order to reach a “conclusive end” on the matter.
The Registrar, however, said some students, especially those on 200 Level, had agreed to continue with the new fee but later rescinded the decision and took to protest rather than dialogue, declaring that, “the senate of the institution has resolved to shut the institution indefinitely as the students have vowed to continue their protest.
“The Senate reached this decision to guard against the breakdown of law and order by students as meeting with stakeholders over the matter is ongoing. The students agreed to pay the tuition when they resumed newly but they later abandoned the agreement for protest. The new date of resumption will be communicated to them after we have resolved the matter,” Akinusi said.
