Poor funding by Federal/State Govt force 38 Nigerian Universities to increase tuition fees - ASUU

Poor funding by Federal/State Govt force 38 Nigerian Universities to increase tuition fees - ASUU

No fewer than 38 universities across the country have increased their tuition fees as a result of poor funding by the Federal and State governments.
The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan Chapter, Dr. Deji Omole, made this known in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Monday.

The statement which assessed the two years of President Muhammadu Buhari in office, lamented that the current government had made Nigerians poorer.

Omole said that the public education was not taken seriously because most children of the rich and those in high offices do not attend school in Nigeria.

“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 would be difficult for any Nigeria university to effectively compete globally with the inadequate allocation of budgetary funding as prescribed by UNESCO to fund education.


It was learned that University of Lagos (UNILAG) which was paying N14, 500 would now pay N63, 500 as tuition fees.


Other institutions that increased their fees include, Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), from N27, 000 to N41, 00; University of Nigeria (UNN), from N60, 450 to N66, 950; Obafemi Awolowo University, from N19, 700 to N55,700.


Others are Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK), from N20, 100 to N65,920; Bayero University, Kano, from N26,000 to N40,000; the University of Abuja, from N39,300 to N42,300 and Usman Danfodiyo University, from N32,000 to N41,000.


National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), from N36,000 to N41,000; University of Benin (UNIBEN), from N12, 000 to N49,500; the University of Ilorin, from N16, 000 to N75,000 and Federal University of Technology, Akura (FUTA), from N13, 560 to N83,940.

Covenant University, from N774, 500 to N814, 500, while Benson Idahosa University increases it tuition fees from N284, 300 to N1, 150,000.


Meanwhile, ASUU President Biodun Ogunyemi, has vowed that the union would resist any attempt to increase tuition fees in the country’s public universities.


In an exclusive chat with Premuim Times, he said ASUU could go on strike, if the government failed to meet its demand for adequate funding of institutions and payment of salaries.


Ogunyemi also said the union would not accept any increase in fees by state or federal governments.


“We will not tolerate any attempt to increase tuition fee, we are against telling people to pay more, even the current fees, we are still fighting them, we as a body have always stood against fee increment and we will continue to stand against it,” he said.


The union leader spoke against the backdrop of reports of a possible increase in tuition fees in universities by the federal government.


According to him, ASUU has been engaging the federal government since November 2016 on issues rocking the university system.


He said: “The truth is there are lots of issues rocking the system. We have made our position known to the federal government; we have also written to state governments who have refused to give subvention to their universities.


“Some of them cannot sustain one university and they go on to establish two or three, compounding the issues.


“We have given the government till June ending to attend to our needs. If the government does not call us by June ending, we will convey a meeting to take our position.


“However, we are trying to engage the government but if they don’t invite us to a meeting before June ending, we will still take our position on whether we are going on strike or not.


“But that will not be like early July but middle or late July, that is if they don’t heed to our demands, which includes payment of salaries, funding, research and lots more.”


Asked if ASUU would initiate a meeting with the federal government, he said: “we will not initiate any meeting if they don’t call us, we can’t initiate a meeting.”


He added that the feedback received from the petitions written to the government would determine whether there would be a strike or not.
