Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education students to hold emergency meeting over tuition fee

The authority of the school recently increased the tuition fee.

The Students of the Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, AOCOED, Ijanikin, Lagos, are to hold an emergency congress to discuss the reviewed tuition fee in the school with a view to accepting or rejecting it.

The President, National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, AOCOED Chapter, Saka Gbenayon, disclosed this in an interview in Lagos on Monday.

Mr. Gbenayon said the congress would hold before the end of this week.

He said that although he signed a memorandum of understanding with the institution’s management on the tuition, the students’ wish must be respected.

“A congress will be convened to seek the views of the students to know if they can accommodate the new amount since they are the ones to pay the bill,” he said.

AOCOED recently compromised on its increment of tuition fees by reducing it from N120, 000 to N95, 000 for the three-year programme.

The reduction followed a protest by students on February 3, shortly after the management increased the tuition from N75,000 to N120,000.

“A committee has been set up by the Directorate of Higher Education to look into other issues causing a setback for the students.

“The committee is expected to submit its report within one month,” the unionist said.

The students are also aggrieved at the alleged delay in the release of their first semester examination results.
