The management of Osun State University has debuked claims of tuition fee increment for the upcoming academic session.
A recent publication by Osun Defender, an Osun based newspaper, alleged an increase in tuition fees for the upcoming academic session.
A statement by the Public Relations Officer, Ademola Adesoji, said contrary to the report, the university has not increased its tuition fees.
“The recent adjustments in fees pertain solely to ancillary charges, not tuition fees,” stated Adesoji.
The university reaffirmed the earlier statement by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Clement Adebooye that there would be no increment in tuition fees due to prevailing economic challenges.
“The reported increment purportedly discovered on the institution’s website does not relate to tuition and is described accordingly. Osun Defender’s interpretation of the breakdown of the university fees is inaccurate and misleading. We urge the public to disregard such misinformation and seek accurate details directly from official university channels,” the statement read.
