Kaduna University Hikes Tuition Fees From N26000 To N500000 For Non Indigenes by MASTAkiLLAh(m): 7:22pm On Apr 25, 2021
KASU students reject tuition fees increase by Kaduna Government

Students of Kaduna State University (KASU) on Thursday rejected the tuition fee increase from between N24,000 and N26,000 to from N150,000 to N500,000 by the State Government.

The students rejected the hike in Kaduna during a meeting with the students’ representatives, organised by the Dean of Student Affairs, Dr Terhimba Wuam.

Mr Abdulrazak Shuaibu, a medical student who spoke on behalf of the students, said that the tuition fees was increased from N26,000 to N150,000 for students in Faculty of Arts, Management and Social Sciences.

Shuaibu, a former President of the Kaduna State Students Union, added that the tuition fee for for Faculty of Medicine was increased from N24,000 to N300,000 for indigenes and N500,000 for non-indigenes.

He described the increase as “outrageous” considering the current economic hardship being faced by parents and the negative impact of COVID-19.

He said that the students have rejected the increase and called on the state government to revert to the former fees.

“Currently, most students find it difficult to pay the N26,000 fees with a few dropping out of school eventually while some female students had to resort to prostitution to be able to pay.

“This is because majority of us came from poor homes with our parents struggling to feed us and pay our school fees.

“Moreso, we are yet to recover from COVID-19 and the state government is increasing school fees. This is unfair and unreasonable,” he said.

He noted that although some of the students were enjoying the state government scholarship, the beneficiaries were less than 5,000.

“This also means that the government is giving us scholarship and collecting even more from us as tuition fee. We, therefore, reject the scholarship,” he said.

Also speaking, Mr Adonalo Stephen, the Secretary General, National Association of Kaduna State Students, pointed out that most of their parents were being sacked from the civil service, a development that has already thrown many families into economic crises.

Stephen therefore appealed to the state government to reconsider its stand and revert the tuition fee to the old rate so as not to deny many youths in the state university education.

Responding, the Vice-Chancellor Academy, Prof. Abdullahi Ashafa, aknowledged the tuition fee increase by the State Executive Council.

Ashafa explained that the university requires huge funding to efficiency provide the needed quality education and skills that would make the students useful to themselves and to the society.

He said that perhaps the tuition fee was increased to enable the school generate the needed funds it requires to deliver its mandate.

He appealed to the students to be law abiding and not to take law into their hands in their quest to seek reversal of the fee increase.

Ashafa commended the students for the display of maturity and the choice of dialogue in presenting their concerns.
Earlier, Wuam explained that the meeting was convened to get feedback from the students and agree on way forward to avoid actions that could lead to breakdown of law and order by the students.

Many non Indigenes grew up in Kaduna, that's the only home they know. I don't know what the state government hopes to achieve by this draconian hike except to chase non Indigenes away from the school because that's the only outcome. The disparity in fees for Indigenes and non Indigenes is crazy

Not that the university is even one of the best in Africa o.

But from #24000 to #500000? Even though El-Rufai is capable of many things, I doubt if he has reached this threshold.

When they say non indigenes they are actually targeting the southernerns who are predominantly christians attending the school


Its not for the other northern Muslims poor who can't even afford kunu


Meanwhile they would use your oil money to run it, welcome to one najiria for the gullible who won't leave north

Sambisa is fine, we are doing shooting practice to gain experience on how to dismantle Ipob terrorist group in the south east.

Don't forget an army man is trained to shoot and kill...so beware, don't try to be a shooting target.
