By: Toluwalope Ayeye

The University of Ibadan Students’ Union Executive Council, led by Samuel Samson Tobiloba, has on Thursday, April 11th 2024 made its position known as to the recent fee increment, which reflected on fresh students’ portal.

The Students’ Union through a special release noted that the opening of the students’ portal was a demo according to the school management, with fees ranging from #133,500 to #372,500, depending on courses.

We note with concern that this increment represents about 450% to 750% of the previous bundle fee which ranged from about #20,000 to #30,000” the release stated.

Displeased with the discovery however, the Students’ Union noted that it was not in support of the discovery, enjoining fresh students to exercise patience with paying the new fee construct.

The Union condemns this increment in strong terms, and request that this proposed increment be reverted to the status quo. We are also requesting for a meeting with the University Management towards resolving this issue” the release added.

Also, the Students’ Representative Council (UI’SRC) led by Rt. Hon. Omotunde Olamide has on April 11th, 2024 called for an emergency sitting in a bid to determine the Union’s stance regarding the inflated fee for incoming fresh students.

The emergency sitting slated to hold at the SRC Chambers, Kunle Adepeju Students’ Union Building, UI, by 5pm, is open to  all students and other members of the University community to observe.
