The University of Ibadan Students’ Union (UISU), headed by Aweda Bolaji, on Monday, May 21, 2024, urged fresh students to refrain from making any fee payment until a definitive resolution is reached.

The Students’ Union, through a release signed jointly by the President, Aweda Bolaji and the Union’s General Secretary, Ogundijo Dolapo, reassured students that progress is being made in addressing the issue of fee hike.

“We have met with university administrators, financial officers, and student representatives to discuss the implications and potential solutions. These meetings have been constructive and have provided us with a clearer understanding of the complexities involved. We are exploring various avenues to ensure students are not overburdened by outrageous fees, and we are hopeful that our ongoing negotiations will yield positive results” the release reads.

“We want to assure you that this issue is at the top of our agenda. We are fully aware of the anxiety it has caused, particularly among our freshers, who are new to the university and are already having to face this teeming crisis,” the statement reads further.

“However, we urge all students, especially freshers, to continue to exercise patience. We strongly advise you to hold off on making any fee payments until we have a definitive resolution. We assure you that we are working tirelessly to ensure a favorable resolve” the release concluded.

The Union also called upon students to stand together in solidarity to protect common interests.
