University Of Ibadan Students Unhappy With Almost 300% Fee Increment

SHARE

Students of the University of Ibadan are currently shocked and displeased, to say the least, at the recent increment of fees in the institution especially in the the school’s college of Medicine.

According to reports,the school fees which was N25,000 as at last session, has now been increased to N31,150. While the accommodation fees which was hitherto N14,000, has been increased to N30,000–and N40,000 for students in the medical hostel.

But the major issue and fee increment that particularly affects students in college of medicine is a new levy called ‘clinical training levy’ which ranges from #75, 000 to #100,000. This fee affects medical students, dental students, nursing, human nutrition, med lab, physiotherapy, physiology, biochemistry and so on.

Some students who spoke to LIB on the condition of anonymity said,

‘they (school authorities) have been giving excuses like ‘the federal government is no longer funding us’ and all, but the major question is why only UI? UI isn’t the only school offering these courses and yet it is the only one that wants to impose a levy. Our student union was also suspended last year so I think this is an attempt by the school authorities to impose the fees on us hoping we wouldn’t put up a fight’.

Students cry out after?University of Ibadan?increases fees by almost 300%

Another student said, ‘what happens to people that cannot afford it? Some of my classmates could not even afford the previous fees and now they have to deal with this increment? Most of the hostels are in a very bad condition. The hostels are overcrowded, bed bug infested with hiccuping light and water supply yet we are asked to pay more. That is only acceptable if living conditions in The hostels are improved’.
