According to reports, the federal government of Nigeria is planning a massive increase of the Nigerian federal universities’ fees by N350,000.

Dr. Ade Adejumo, the Zonal coordinator of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ibadan Zone, revealed this on Tuesday while addressing members of the Correspondents’ Chapel of the NUJ in Ibadan.

Dr. Ade Adejumo therefore called on ASUU to inform the general public that the planned increase will lead to labour crisis in federal universities.

He said,

“The union is again constrained to draw the attention of Nigerian public to an impending labour crisis in the Nigerian universities as a result of the insensitivity of the Nigerian government to issues critical to the survival of the educational system in Nigeria.

“It is no longer news that the renegotiation, which Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, promised was going to last for only six weeks, has broken down

“The union was confronted with a situation where government is bent on imposing tuition fees, beginning from N350,000, on students in the Nigerian public owned tertiary institutions.

“As to how the students will raise such money, we were told that the government will establish Education Bank, where students will access credit facilities and pay back on completion of their studies.

“The union, speaking from the background that education is the right and not privilege of every Nigerian child, made frantic efforts to make pragmatic explanations on the negative implications and the non-feasibility of this scheme to representatives of government to no avail.“
