UNILAG Debunks Alleged Fresh Increment In Fee


The management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has described as misleading and untrue claims that the institution has added to the new fees payable by old and returning students.

A disclaimer notice signed by Adejoke Alaga-Ibraheem, Head, of the Communication Unit and made available to EDUCATION ROADMAP explained that information was a misrepresentation of the institution, saying the authority of the university is aware of the economic challenges in the country and would not add to the burden.

The disclaimer tagged: “University of Lagos Sets Record Straight on Alleged Additional Increment of Fees”, read, “The University of Lagos (UNILAG) wishes to explicitly refute unsubstantiated claims making the rounds that the University has “…slammed additional unauthorised charges to its earlier increments…”

“These completely untrue and misleading claims misrepresent the facts and aim to misinform the public into believing that there has been another adjustment of fees.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the University of Lagos Management hereby categorically states that this is not the case.

“Management is not unmindful of the prevailing economic realities, and as of the date of this disclaimer, has not issued any other notice of increment apart from the “Adjusted Obligatory Fees for New and Returning Undergraduate Students” published in its Information Flash News Bulletin (Vol. MMXXIII, No. 80) on Fri day, July 21, 2023.

“The University Management understands the importance of accurate, verifiable and timely information, and views with utmost concern the attempt to spread false narratives that undermine its integrity.

“Members of the university community and general public, especially students and their families are, therefore, implored to rely on the official communication channels of the University for announcements, notice, or updates regarding fees, policies, or any other information relating to the University.”

The University assured all stakeholders of its unwavering dedication to upholding its mandate, and commitment to ensure that students get the best learning experience.
