UNILAG increases tuition fee
UNILAG was recently in the news as one of the federal universities that have increased its tuition fee following the removal of the fuel subsidy and the increase in the cost of living.
The increment has spurred reactions from parents and concerned Nigerians, citing the current hardship in the country due to the removal of fuel subsidies.
Reacting to the development, President Bola Tinubu said his administration did not order federal universities to increase their tuition fees, stating that federal institutions remain tuition free.

Last week, some federal institutions, including the University of Lagos (UNILAG), joined the latest hiking fees for new and returning undergraduate students.
The UNILAG, in a statement, said the increase resulted from the “prevailing economic realities”.
AWARDNOBS also reported that some universities had announced an increment in the fees students would pay in the new session about to be resumed.
Institutions like Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria; Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Ile-Ile have been reported to be planning to increase their fees in the coming session. This was disclosed in separate interviews with some students of these institutions.
