UNILAG tuition is free — Deputy Registrar says
The University of Lagos has said that it has yet to increase its tuition, contrary to reports making the rounds.
Deputy Registrar, Mr. Toyin Adebule, said this on Monday.
A statement credited to a group had recently alerted the public to an alleged increment in tuition in federal universities and some state-owned tertiary institutions.
However, Adebule has asked members of the public to discountenance the report.
He said, “ Contrary to the news making the rounds on print, electronic and social media that the University of Lagos has increased its tuition, the university wishes to inform its students, their parents/guardians and the general public that the statement is not true and it is a complete distortion of facts.
“We want to emphasise here that tuition is free in the University of Lagos. Fresh and returning students are only charged obligatory fees depending on their status.’’
