38 govt, private varsities hike tuition fees

No fewer than 38 universities across the country have jerked up their fees.

The increment might be attributed to poor funding by the federal and state governments.

The  Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has rated President Muhammadu Buhari poorly in the area of funding of university education.

ASUU noted that it will be difficult for any Nigeria university to effectively compete globally with the attitude of Buhari not to allocate enough budgetary allocation as prescribed by UNESCO to fund education.

In a statement made available to DAILY POST, the Chairman, ASUU – University of Ibadan chapter, Dr. Deji Omole, lashed out at APC for promising “a minimum of 15 percent for education”.

The statement which assessed the two years of Buhari in office, lamented that the current government had made Nigerians poorer, adding that public education was not taken seriously because most children of the rich and those in high offices do not school in Nigeria.
