Breaking: Federal universities remain tuition-free- Presidency
The Presidency announced on Wednesday that tuition at federal universities remains free, despite the increase in supplementary fees at several universities across the country.
This comes a few days after Federal Unity Colleges raised the tuition for new students from N45,000 to N100,000.
The presidency claimed that they are supplementary costs and do not affect tuition, despite conceding the surge in fees at federal universities across the country.
According to the statement, the administration of Bola Tinubu “remains committed to his promise of ensuring that every Nigerian, regardless of the economic situation of their parents, has access to quality tertiary education.” It also stated that the administrators of these universities had explained the reasoning behind these new fees.
