The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has said the Federal Government will harmonise tuition in all federal universities to stop arbitrary charge of fees by some university authorities.
Adamu, made this known while fielding questions on the News Agency of Nigeria Forum in Abuja on Tuesday.
He said, “Since the protests started, we have summoned the authorities of the universities and sat down with them and we are going to harmonise everything.
“Because, I think it is N45,000 that is the maximum that should be charged. I know in some places, there has been other arrangement.
“But the ministry would harmonise everything and I believe there will be no more protests over fees.”
The Universities of Lagos, Ibadan and Port Harcourt were recently shut down following students’ protests over increase in fees, lack of water and power supply on the campuses.
Adamu said that the Federal Government was discussing with management of the affected universities, adding that efforts were also ongoing to introduce harmonised fees for all federal universities.
