Federal Universities In Nigeria Remain Tuition-free – Presidency.

Contrary to rumors making the round about the increment of Federal University fees by the Federal Government, the Presidency has maintained that Federal Universities in the country remain tuition-free

The Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communications & Strategy, Mr. Dele Alake, in a statement on Wednesday, argued that what has happened was an increase in discretionary charges by each university for hostel accommodation, registration, laboratory and other charges.
Mr Alake reiterated the commitment of President Bola Tinubu to his promise of ensuring that every Nigerian, regardless of the economic situation of their parents, have access to quality tertiary education.

He said “in addition to the Students’ Loans Scheme, under the Student Loans Bill signed into law by President Tinubu last month, which will go into implementation ahead of the next academic session in September, the Federal Government will also strengthen other mechanisms to support indigent students.

According to him, “part of the government’s plans to make sure all diligent students complete their education on time, notwithstanding their parents’ financial situation, include work-study, merit-based scholarships and grants.”
