FG Bars Federal Universities From Charging Tuition Fees


The Minister of State for Education, Anthony Anwuka, has announced that The Federal Executive Council has barred all Federal university from charging tuition fees. Mr. Anwuka made this announcement while briefing State House correspondents after the council meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo this morning.

The minister said the council discussed the school fees being charged by various universities “and noted that as of law, no federal university should charge tuition fees.” He added that the council understood that some federal universities charged fees per course unit, an allegation that would be investigated and stopped.

“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
