The Management of Federal Polytechnic, Ede, in Osun State has debunked the report of increment in school fees for all students of the institution.
The [Protocol, Media and Public Relations Officer of the School, Mr. Sola Lawal, made this clarification in a statement on Sunday in Osogbo.
Lawal described the allegation As baseless and callous.
The Spokesman of the citadel of learning said the allegation that the management of the school increased school fees by one hundred percent was not true.
According to him, the increment in school fees is for new students that are due to resume in June, and the increase was by only thirty percent.
Lawal said the old students were not in any way affected by the increment.
‘’The misinformation that one hundred percent increment was made for all students is not only unfounded but wicked and unthinkable.’’
‘’As a matter of fact, the Polytechnic portal has correct school fee structures for all levels of students.’’
‘’’ Indeed , we are not unaware of the unfriendly economic season that is why the increase was pegged at thirty –percent.’’
‘’Even at that, it is still the lowest in the zone, and only for those that are coming in, newly.’’.
‘’The simple analysis of the pattern of payment is those old students that are paying N32,000 will continue paying b the amount till graduation,’’ he said.
Lawal said there were, however, wide consultations with critical stakeholders, including student union leadership before the final approval of the 30% increase in new students fees by the Governing council.
