Following a report that has been going viral on various social media platforms that the Management of Kwara State University, Malete has sanctioned an increment in the tuition fees of the state-owned university.
The management, however, in a statement signed by the school’s acting registrar, Mallam Mohammed A. Shuaib has in a clear term debunked the rumors.
Parts of the statement read: “The Management of the Kwara State University, Malete wishes to inform the general public that there is no iota of truth in the rumours making the round that the Management has increased KWASU Students’ school fees.
“We however wish to state that there is an ongoing robust discussion between Management and the Students union leaders on ways to improve on the financial standing of the university towards the provision of standard teaching and learning regime.
“In line with our desire to entrench a culture of participatory governance in the administration of the university, management has ensured that the conversation has been democratic, peaceful and harmonious. It is important to state that no concrete decision has been reached for now.
“We therefore urge the general public to utterly disregard this fake rumour,” the registrar added.
