ABUAD Management Denies School Fees Increment
The management of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABAUD) has denied the alleged school fees increment for students of the institution.
In a statement titled “Alleged N1m increase in school fees: a clarification.” signed by the Head, Public Relations, Mr. Tunde Olofintila, it noted that the alleged report of increment in the university was not only misleading but also a distortion of facts.
Olofintila said, “Our attention has been drawn to some unwarranted comments, particularly on the Internet and some Nigerian tabloids, by some individuals that the university has unilaterally increased school fees for 2014/2015 academic session. These individuals, with intent to misinform and mislead the public, deliberately distorted the facts and circumstances surrounding these fees.
“We would like to say very unambiguously that contrary to this spurious and unsubstantiated claim and for the records, we have not increased our school fees. We have not increased in any way the school fees for the 2014/2015 academic session for our medical programme or any programme for that matter.”
He insisting that the institution is one of the cheapest private universities in the country and added that its founder provided scholarships to deserving students as well as subvention to its medical students.
