The meeting started with introduction of all the attendees and after which the SUG President stated the main purpose of the meeting demanding the reason for the increase of the acceptance fee.
After which the Vice Chancellor entertain lots of questions from all the comrades in attendance.
The Vice Chancellor started by responding that there has never been any plan to increase our school fees and hostel fees and that everything is still the same.
He assured everyone that there will be no increment on our fees.
On the issue of Acceptance fee( 30,000 increment), the Vice Chancellor gave his reasons for the unexpected increase in the acceptance fee for the newly admitted students.
According to the Vice chancellor,
“The University needs a lot of fund to repair the defaced system and make our campus better, hence the management need to find a gap to raise fund as we dont want to bother those already in the system.
He further stated, we are just doing our best to find a bit more means to make our campus better without overbearing on returning students.
We have to design a better portal, a better digitization system, our students needs to be collecting their transcript online as at the due time and we have to take our University to a new heights.
When you go to other federal universities, you will discover some collect less acceptance fees and some collect higher than this. Our goal is that those coming behind must have much better system and conducive environment to learn even if some of our returning students might have suffered without that in the past.
Our University must be the best, so far we have been fair and looking around at other Federal universities, we ensure we remain fair and kind hearted as to the issue of acceptance fee.
Our hostels are really bad. We need to put things in good shape.
University of Abuja is a school that resides at the capital city of the nation and therefore must be well structured.
Over 95% of the aspirant that were given admission have already payed the (#30000) and accepted their admission. He further stated…
“Hold us accountable if the funds are not utilized for the benefit of the students”.
However, the vice chancellor assured us that that is the only fee that was and will be increased.
On this note, we humbly plead with everyone to remain calm.
The Vice chancellor have shown from all indications that indeed he is ready to make our school Standard.
Don’t forget, there will be no increase in our school fees. Our school fees still remains the same.
I want to use this opportunity to appreciate all the comrades that show capacity yesterday by standing for the entire students of this great institution, history will forever remember you all.
In a special way, I also want to appreciate the entire students of the University of Abuja for their support so far, since we assumed office, together we will achieve great.
Aluta continua… Victoria asceta.
