Hike in fees: UNIOSUN, state govt, group trade words



The Osun State University, UNIOSUN, has denounced claims of an increase in tuition fees for the upcoming academic session, labeling it as misleading. In a statement issued by the University’s Public Relations Officer, Ademola Adesoji on Monday, it was clarified that the recent adjustments in fees were specifically related to ancillary charges, not tuition fees.

“The recent adjustments in fees pertain solely to ancillary charges, not tuition fees,” affirmed the University’s spokesperson.

Furthermore, the University emphasized its stance on not raising tuition fees amidst the prevailing economic challenges and assured the public that the reported increment on the website was not linked to tuition fees.

On a different note, The Osun Masterminds, TOM, voiced their disapproval of the purported reduction in funding to UNIOSUN in their November state of the state address. According to TOM’s Executive Director, Prof Wasiu Oyedokun-Alli, a decrease in subvention to UNIOSUN would compel the institution to seek alternative revenue sources, potentially through an increase in school fees. TOM expressed concerns that this move would further burden already financially strained parents in the country.

Responding to these claims, a statement from Olawale Rasheed, the spokesperson to the Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, refuted TOM’s allegations. The government emphasized that the current administration has significantly contributed to the development of the university and called for a focus on the completion of abandoned projects and the substantial capital funding support provided by the state government to the university.
