The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has denied media reports of an additional increment of the stated July tuition charges.
Head of the Communication Unit of UNILAG, Mrs Adejoke Alaga-Ibraheem, revealed this in a statement released at late hours of day on Friday, the 18th of August 2023.
In the statement, she denounced the claims and categorized them as a misrepresentation of facts. Adding that the institution has not introduced any further increase excluding the modified fees published in the university’s Information bulletin.
“These completely untrue and misleading claims misrepresent the facts and aim to misinform the public into believing that there has been another adjustment of fees. For the avoidance of doubt, the University of Lagos Management hereby categorically states that this is not the case.”
“Management is not
unmindful of the prevailing economic realities and, as of the date of this disclaimer, has not issued any other notice of increment apart from the ‘Adjusted Obligatory Fees for New and Returning Undergraduate Students’ published in its Information Flash News Bulletin (Vol. MMXXIII, No. 80) and official website on Friday, July 21, 2023.” she said.
She also cautioned members of the universities community against falling victim to false news and encouraged using only authorized channels of the University as a source for information.
“Members of the university community and general public, especially students and their families are, therefore, implored to rely on the official communication channels of the University for announcements, notice, or updates regarding fees, policies, or any other information relating to the University,” the statement added.
She reaffirmed the university’s dedication to uphold its mandate, and emphasized it’s commitment to ensuring that students get the best learning experience.
