VCs advocate introduction of tuition fee in public varsities


Vice chancellors of Nigerian Universities have called for the introduction of tuition fees in public universities in the country.

The vice chancellors, under the auspices of the Committee of Vice Chancellors of Nigerian Universities, say that a tuition free university education is no longer realistic in Nigeria.

The committee made the call in a communique issued by its Secretary General, Professor Michael Faborode, at the end of a meeting in Abuja.

They explain that the proposed tuition fees will enable the government to share the financial burden of running universities with parents and guardians of the students.

To reduce the financial burden on poor students, the Vice Chancellor asked the Presidency  to re-introduce the education bank to provide loan to pay the proposed tuition fees.
