AAUA SUG Officials, Ondo State Govt To Meet over School Fees

The Student Union (SUG) officials of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), Ondo state will on Monday, the 27th of May, 2019 meet with the officials of the Ondo State Government to figure out a way past the school fees saga which has kept academic activities at the state owned University paralysed for Months now.

Remember that the Students Union Government (SUG), officials have been at loggerheads with the University Authorities, as well as the State Government over the drastic and unexplained increase in the tuition fee of students from N23,000 to N150,000 per session by the current governor of the state.

The Student Union of the University, & that of other allied Institutions in the state who share similar pain has held several demonstrations and protests across the state capital, since the past two weeks. The union has insisted on a No reduction, No resumption Stance, and this has forces the Management of the Institution to postpone resumption till further notice.

The meeting which would hold on Monday, the 27th of May, 2019, at the State Government house, would be between the officials of NANS, AAUASU, University’s GOVERNING COUNCIL AND ONDO STATE GOVERNMENT.

The meeting is expected to have the presence of the Commissioner for Education as well as the state Governor and is expected to put an end to the increased fee saga, and bring students back to school as soon as possible.

Below is a copy of the School fee receipt of a student of the Adejunle Ajasin University, before the increase in the 2017/2018 session and another fee after the increase from N23,000 to N150,000 .

We hope for an amicable resolution to the lingering issue which would be favorable to the students community.
