The Federal Ministry of Education has debunked claims on social media that the Federal Government had approved the hike in tuition fees of Nigerian universities to N350,000. The Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU, recently alleged that the Federal government was proposing a hike in tuition fees in Federal universities to the tune of N350k a session. Speaking at a symposium in Abuja today, the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Education, Sonny Echono, said the Federal Government was not planning to increase the tuition fees“The Federal Government did not and has no intention of introducing new tuition fees in our public universities not to mention the figure to N350, 000. What is true is that the present administration is committed to guarantee quality of education. President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the ministry of education along with the ministry of finance to jointly organise a workshop that will inform on a very sustainable and workable recommendation of funding education in Nigeria. And to this end, we have been engaging various stakeholders including ASUU who can come up with a very useful contribution that will bring all these recommendations achievable'' he said The post Ministry of Education denies plan to hike universities tuition fees to N350k appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
