Kwara Poly's tuition fees not increased ----AjeigbeThe Kwara State government on Tuesday debunked the allegation that there is hike in the tuition fee of the Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin.

ROYAL NEWS reports that the institution was said to have allegedly introduced a new tuition fee of N75, 000 as against N58, 000 charged the students last session.

Speaking with journalists, the Commissioner of Information in the state, Alhaji Mahmud Ajeigbe, said: “There was no change in the tuition fee”, even as he blamed the perpetrators as inciting students to cause crisis over the matter.

Ajeigbe who was supported by the Registrar of the Polytechnic, Mr.  Moses Salami, and  representatives of students at the briefing also corroborated the stance of the authorities.

According to him,  “government delegation led by the Commissioner for Tertiary Education, Amina Mohammed met with management of the institution over the matter and explained that their findings showed that it was just a rumour spread by social media and about  which some people in the state were making mischief.”

He further said that there was no increase of fee for the returning students who are now either HND 2 or ND 2 students and this was corroborated by an HND 2 student at the meeting who said he paid the same N58,000 he paid last session when he was an HND 1 student.

Ajeigbe however explained that the institution has not yet determined what tuition fee of students with fresh admission for ND 1and HND 1 would be, saying this would be determined by realities on ground.

The institution Registrar who expatiated on this  said though the school has spent more money on accreditation of its courses this year it would not allow that to be a major influence on  the amount to be paid by fresh students.
