Ondo Varsity Students to Pay N2.245m as Tuition Fees

The Ondo State Governor, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has been receiving knocks over the recent increase of the tuition fee of the state-owned University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, Ondo, which required non-indigenes and indigenes studying dentistry in the institution in the preclinical years to pay N2.245 million and N1.320 respectively.

In a new schedule released by the school management, the fees to be paid by non-indigenous students were 59 per cent higher than what indigenous students would pay.

The development was described as shocking, inhumane and unacceptable by students, parents and opposition party.

Also, non-indigenous students studying medicine in the pre-clinical year are to pay N2.245 million per session while indigenous students are to pay N1.320 million per session.

THISDAY gathered that the only courses with low fees are Biochemistry and Physiology for which non-indigenous students are to pay N400,000 while indigenous students are to pay N350,000 per session.

Meanwhile, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Adesegun Fatusi, has stated that there was no going back on the new fee schedule, stressing that the new fee was for students to be admitted to the new academic session and in line with the institution’s commitment to offering quality education.

“The parents have an option. It is not compulsory for their children to study here. Other medical schools are available.

“We run this school almost free of tuition fees. This school is a specialised school and we cannot continue with the previous fees,” Fatusi said.

A student of the institution, Mr. Ajayi Kehinde, told THISDAY that “we were paying N350,000 and it was difficult, how does the government want our parents to get this huge amount of money from? This must be looked into.”

A parent who identified herself as Mrs. Adewole, called on the state government to rescind its decision for the interest of the poor masses.

Reacting, the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the state tackled Akeredolu over astronomical hike in the fees, noting that the hike is a silent notice to parents who could not afford the new fees regime to withdraw their children.

The statement that was signed by the State Publicity Secretary of PDP by Mr. Kennedy Peretei, reads: “Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu has never hidden his penchant for increasing fees in tertiary institutions since he assumed leadership of the State. Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko and Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa had suffered serial closures over students’ protests bordering on fees hike.

“The Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo shrank to a student population of 1,753 from over 9,000 due to fees increase. Most private residential accommodation for students in Owo is now empty. Even the economy of the ancient city has been adversely affected.

“Parents and students of UNIMED received shockers of their lives when they noticed increment of fees with nearly 120 per cent for 2021/2022 session. No explanation was given for this hike. Medical students have to pay as much as N1,320,000.00 as against N515,000.00 payable in the previous academic session (2020/2021).

The party noted that “at Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti students of Medicine and Surgery require only N468,750.00 for 2021/2022 Session. For Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye N176,396.00 will be enough for the same course.”

It called on the governor and the APC led government to wear a human face in taking decisions that affect the wellbeing of future leaders.

“A government that only brings sorrow to the people through policies of this nature is no longer worthy of its stay in power.

“If neighbouring states with lesser revenue are charging lesser fees, why must Ondo State breed University drop outs because of wickedness of one man?

“Education is the only industry Ondo State is known for. If the incumbent administration cannot improve our lots, it is better not to complicate a bad situation.

As if there is a job out there waiting for you after paying all these exorbitant fees. Students are to pay 2.2 million naira when the minimum wage is thirty thousand naira. Make it make sense please.
During the AAUA saga also, a lot of students who could not afford the increment drop out from school.

How many state universities does the other states you're comparing Ondo state with have? Ondo state has three!

They should direct all their displeasure to Mimiko (the stupid ex Governor) that abandoned a university to set up another university without proper planning.

Henrycfc4life:
I think this guy is one of the APC E-rat in Ondo state.
I think you're the APC E-rat aka Zombie

What I put down there is just the truth, all these universities don't have IGR so they rely on the government and the fees generated in the school in one way or the other to run them. Our ex Governor (Mimiko) abandoned a university established by his predecessor (Agagu) to establish this university in his hometown while he was owing over 5 months salary then, so he's the foundation of the problem the school is facing now!

I have no business with any party, it's just what it is.

What is the average salary of state civil servants in ondo state to begin with. So technically what the state government is saying is that only the super rich are entitled to university education.

I don't blame them anyways, Nigerians are slaves who love their chains.

This I have seen.

How do you drop this kind of fees on people.





Is there no provision for gradual progressive increment?

Prof Fatusi is former provost of College of Health Science, OAU, Ife. He is a professor of community health. He has turned to a monster.
As one of his former students, i remember his telling us how he enjoyed free education etc as student. He graduated from oau as well.

Most of those sitting over these callous decisions are beneficiaries of Western Nigeria free education of Chief Awolowo's Government. Without that they wouldn't be educated not to talk of being able to access the opportunities they now have. It is very hard-breaking. Their children are away in foreign countries and the poor can go to hell. It is well. The hens will certainly come home to roost!
