Reps Order Nigerian Govt To Stop Admission Fees In Tertiary Institutions

Nigeria’s House of Representatives has ordered the Federal Ministry of Education and the National Universities Commission to immediately stop undergraduate admission fees charged by Universities.

In a resolution passed by the lower chamber at Wednesday’s plenary, it also mandated its Committee on Tertiary Education and Services to investigate the admission policies and practices, saying that a lot of Nigerians have been stressed while accessing admission into various institutions of higher learning.

The House resolution followed a motion sponsored by Hon. Chinedu Emeka Martins representing Ahiazu/Ezinihitte Federal Constituency of Imo State.

The lawmaker decried undergraduate admission acceptance fees being charged by Universities, saying that it further put financial burden on the prospective students and should be stopped.

“Having passed through the rigours of Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE), and the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), it was inappropriate to charge admission acceptance fees. ”

“Even the federally operated Universities charges admission fees highly.

“University of Ibadan – N35,000, 
University of Lagos – N20,000, 
Ahmadu Bello University – N30,000,
 Imo State University – N70,000 
 Lagos State University – N20,000.

After various contributions in favour of the motion, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila insisted that the Committee should turn in their investigative report in four weeks.

    1. Very good decision. Also they should make the government fund universities more and subsidize tuition.

    2. Niger delta university charges 160k-200k for non indigenes plus extra 40k for acceptance

    3. Anon I’m with u. What about qualitative education???? The kind of graduates we have are so disgraceful

  2. Stop them jare. They're thieves.
