The management of obafemi awolowo university, Ile-Ife has spoken on the alleged increment of school fees.
A viral circular on social media had alleged that the institution has increased the school fees of both fresher and stalite students.
But speaking on Sunday, The management debunked the alleged report describing it as false.
In a statement the university PRO, Abiodun Olarewaju sent to DAILY GIST on Sunday, The management dismissed the report.
The statement reads; ‘The attention of the authorities of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, has been drawn to a circular, purportedly issued by the University Management, that has been going viral on social media, that fees payable by the students have been increased.
A release by the Public Relations Officer of the University, stated that there is no iota of truth in the said circular.
Accordingly, for the avoidance of doubt and to put the record straight, the University Management wishes to inform the general public, most especially our students, their parents or guardians, that the said circular did NOT emanate from us , neither has there been any increase in any of the fees payable either by new students or returning students.
The management, therefore, urged our students, their parents or guardians and all stakeholders in the affairs of Obafemi Awolowo University, to disregard, in its entirety, the said circular with its contents and context.
We wish our fresh and returning students a great and hitch free new academic session, come January 2022.
