Only 28 candidates register for exam in Zamfara state

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of the Ministry of Education says the FG has no plan to increase tuition fees.

Following reports that the Federal Government is planning to increase the tuition fee of Federal Universities to N350,000, the Ministry of Education has debunked the reports saying there is no plan to increase school fees.

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr Sonny Echono made the clarification on Wednesday, October 3, 2018, at a symposium in Abuja.

Enocho urged Nigerians to remain calm on the issue as he assured them the FG has no plan to increase tuition fees.

He said, “The Federal Government did not and has no intention of introducing new tuition fees in our public universities not to mention the figure to N350, 000.

 

“What is true is that the present administration is committed to guaranteeing quality education.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the ministry of education along with the ministry of finance to jointly organise a workshop that will inform on a very sustainable and workable recommendation of funding education in Nigeria.

“And to this end, we have been engaging various stakeholders including ASUU who can come up with a very useful contribution that will bring all these recommendations achievable.

Speaking about education bank which according to report would be introduced to provide loan for indigent students, Enocho said the ministry was working toward re-establishing the education bank to address the role of education funding as the government cannot do it alone.

He said the bank will give loans to students at a low-interest rate.
