Today, Federal Executive Council has discouraged Federal university from paying school fees. Minister of State for Education, Anthony Anwuka, announced this while briefing State House correspondents after the council meeting presided over Vice President Yemi Osinbajo today morning.
This is what he said…
“We understand some universities now charge fees per course unit and we are going to make sure that we investigate that properly and make it stop. Students can pay other auxiliary fees, but not in excess. Various university councils and management should be able to fix what fees students should pay that is affordable and acceptable to the students. That is the position. The federal government does not determine fees for private and state universities. It only takes responsibility for fees paid in the federal universities.” he said
