OAU has not Increased Fees For Students

The Management of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-ife, OAU  is using this medium to inform the general public regarding the false news circulating around social media that it has increased its tuition fee for student with other 38 universities.
Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, has not  increase its tuition fee to N55,700, Though chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Ibadan Chapter, Dr. Deji Omole, was recently quoted as claiming that no fewer than 38 universities across
 OAU was one of the schools affected by the increment. However, it was gathered that OAU students currently pay between N19,700 and N33,700, depending on their course of study.
“Although there may be paucity of funds from the Federal Government in running the institutions of higher learning, which might have prompted some universities to upwardly review their fees, but the situation in OAU is quite different.
“For the avoidance of doubt, there is no meeting, either of the university management or Senate, where the fee increment was announced; and the vice chancellor of the university, Prof. Tope Ogunbodede, has not contemplated on increasing any fee in OAU.
“In actual fact, his administration is poised to making the welfare of staff and students a topmost priority.”
“Accordingly, the VC has advised the students, their parents and/or guardians to completely disregard as unfounded rumour the said news item.
“The administrative and academic affairs of OAU will not be run in secret. The VC will not renege on his pledge of running a very open and transparent administration,” he added.
