Again UNILAG Dismisses Hike In Fees

The management of University of Lagos (UNILAG) has again within a month, disassociated itself with a report on hike in its tuition fees

The university had in July raised some of its charges, citing the prevailing economic conditions in the country as reason for the increase

Weeks after raising some of the charges ,there were claims that the varsity had increased its tuition fees.

But Head, Communication Unit of the university, Adejoke Alaga-Ibraheem was  quick to respond in  statement, describing the reports as “misleading” and “unsubstantiated”.

The statement reads in part :
“The University of Lagos (UNILAG) wishes to explicitly refute unsubstantiated claims making the rounds that the University has ‘…slammed additional unauthorised charges to its earlier increments…'” 
“These completely untrue and misleading claims misrepresent the facts and aim to misinform the public into believing that there has been another adjustment of fees. For the avoidance of doubt, the University of Lagos Management hereby categorically states that this is not the case.

“Management is not unmindful of the prevailing economic realities and, as of the date of this disclaimer, has not issued any other notice of increment apart from the ‘Adjusted Obligatory Fees for New and Returning Undergraduate Students’ published in its Information Flash News Bulletin (Vol. MMXXIII, No. 80) and official website on Friday, July 21, 2023.

“The University Management understands the importance of accurate, verifiable and timely information, and views with utmost concern the attempt to spread false narratives that undermine its integrity.”

UNILAG thus implored students, parents, and the public to disregard such reports about a hike in fees.

“Members of the university community and general public, especially students and their families are, therefore, implored to rely on the official communication channels of the University for announcements, notice, or updates regarding fees, policies, or any other information relating to the University,” the statement added.

“Please be assured of the university’s dedication to uphold its mandate, and commitment to ensuring that students get the best learning experience.”
