School Fees Hike: UNIABUJA Student Rusticated Over Complaints

A student of the University of Abuja, Cyprian Igwe has been rusticated from the school following his complaint about the hike of school fees by the management of the University.

The man who is in the Department of Sociology revealed that he dropped a complaint on the WhatsApp group of the Students Union Government but unfortunately, it was reported to the administration of the school.

However, in the letter of rustication signed by the Deputy Registrar of the University, Alkasim M. Umar on the 26th of May 2023 disclosed that no investigation has been done on the case.

Meanwhile, Mr. Igwe was banned from accessing all the campuses of the University going forward.

The letter reads, “You will recall that on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, an inciteful press release was made available to the public, purportedly signed by the Student Union Government’s President and Speaker.

“Preliminary investigations revealed that you and Oladeru Samson Olamilekan (18291126) facilitated and circulated the information

Your actions are capable of jeopardizing the peaceful and smooth conduct of academic activities in the university and a breach of the University Matriculation Oath.

By the powers conferred on the Vice-Chancellor as contained in the University of Abuja Act, he, on behalf of the Senate, has directed your immediate rustication from the university.

“Accordingly, you are banned from all university campuses pending the determination of the case.”

Recall that in May 2022, the University management increased the school fees citing the inability of the school to depend on government funding.

The new fee structure requires Health Sciences students to pay a whopping N205,000 – N225,000 in school fees, on top of the acceptance fee of N30,000 and other dues and levies. This is the third time in five years that the school fee has been increased.
