No federal varsity should charge tuition, FG insist


 The Federal Executive Council on Wednesday reiterated the tuition- free status of federal universities nationwide.
The Minister of State for Education, Prof. Anthony Anwuka , disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of the council ’s meeting presided over by Vice -President Yemi Osinbajo.
“ The FEC restated government’s position that no federal university should charge tuition fees ,” Anwuka said .
He said government would investigate some universities accused of flouting the law.
The minister, however , said various universities ’ councils and managements were free to fix “ auxiliary fees” which must be affordable and acceptable to students.
He said , “FEC discussed the issue of school fees in the various universities and noted that, as of law, no federal university should charge tuition fees .
We understand that some universities now charge fees per course unit and we are going to make sure that we investigate that properly and make sure it stops .
“ 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 are affordable and acceptable to the students. That is the position .
“ The Federal Government does not determine fees for private and state universities, we only take responsibility for fees paid in the federal universities .”
