Afe Babalola University students deplore increase in their school fees

I've been getting quite a number of emails from students of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti state bemoaning the recent increase in their school fees. According to the students, the school outrageously increased their fees for the 2013/2014 academic session by over 40%. The students got a notice yesterday Monday August 12th informing them of the increase which they say is 'unfair'. For instance Engineering and Law students paid N695,000 last semester but the new fee for this semester is N1,095,000, N695,000 for social and management college and sciences, N1, 200 000 for medicine students, some fees went from N755,000 to N 1,245,000 and so on.

Some students are saying no reduction, no resumption. Below is a broadcast that was sent out
Please let us not go back to school until they reduce the school fees!! Pass this on people..let us protect our parents. If you are not from ABUAD, please pass it on. 49% increase on the school fees is not a joking matter!!
Meanwhile, some students have reached out to the media asking us to appeal to the owner of the school, renowned lawyer, Afe Babalola to please reduce the fees for them. Dear Mr Babalola, please listen to the cry of your students. #messagepassed! :-)

The fees are astronomical I would say, but you can't just castigate the school, its a business and that's what they decide to charge to run it, so only those who can afford would be welcomed, but then with such sharp increase I can be sure lots of folks wouldn't have planned for such steep rise in fees, so I pray their cries are heard.

I don't think the charges are too much for the services they are providing...If education is expensive, then try ignorance. And this is the reason why ASUU is on strike, cost the cost of maintaining the University considered too high by the Nigerian government. Maybe at this point we should respect the government for making University education almost free.

How do you increase tuition by 40%?
I really don't get the educational system in Nig.
I went Uni somewhere in the UK before moving to NY and I don't remember ever having this sort of sky rocketed fee imposed on us.
My siblings who went uni at American Uni of Nig,Yola complained about same thing too,how sad!

Why do you blame increase in school fees in private universities? The people in govt have deliberately kill federal universities due to their selfish interest.You can only know when a child enters a federal university you do not know when he/she will graduate due to ASSU and govt palava.The simple truth is that education today in Nigeria is for the highest bidders.No hope for the less privilege.The unfortunate thing is that most of the proprietors of these universities were products of either free education or govt scholarship. It is case of getting to the top then remove the ladder.We can only appeal to them to be more considerate in their price increase.

I can tell you this and this for sure: Afe won't reduce the school fees! I finished from the school this year and all I'm grateful for is that I'm done. For y'all saying he provides for all and shit.. Crap! U really need to visit and live in the school to understand! Those outrageous fees don't even cover feeding of some sort! We have to beg the people working in the cafeteria when they're serving us food as if we didn't pay for it for them to add more. They used to serve us food like we're dogs.. 50 naira for one scoop of rice??? And then, the accommodation too.. I'm sure u think there's AC in all the rooms right? Think again!!! We use ceiling fans.. And then on top of that, they make us pay "compulsory fees" else we won't sit for exams! When I got in, he made my parents believe in the project saying it was for charity and all that, but since when did paying 1.2m become charity??? That man is just a thief, just like every other corrupt politician. And then he gives scholarships worth 100,000, for what??? All I'm gonna say is, ABUAD students, if u're going to 200L, pls collect ur transcript and move on cos before u finish, u'll be paying close to 2m per session but for those in 300L and above, God'll help and provide for ur parents! I'm not gonna put my name here, I still need my certificate abeg!!!

Bobby Tunandez said...

Who says the increament is not too much. Let's first ask them, is there any agreement on the interval of school fees increament? Like in my own skul, it's already a laid down rule dat skul fees will be increased in 4 years interval. Even with that, 40percent increament is too much. And at the same time, i don't think AFe Babalola is the only private skul in Nigeria, we still have skuls like Bowen, Al-Hikamh, fountain Uni, Adeleke Uni, Oduduwa, Cresent Uni, convenant Uni, redeemers, Jabu, and such like , which pays lesser. Some even pay as low as 286k, 351k,400+K. If Afe insist they wont reduce d fees, student who can't afford it should get transcript and move to another skul. Staying at home wont help coz they'll want to use "Time" to get you to concur with the fees. Many parents will go for Money Rituals to meet up with this new skul fees and that is going to be a social Uncomfortability again. Afe should try to reduce d fees, the increament is too Outrageous.

Linda fenkz so much for helping the students to broadcast this. I'm a student from that school and I can proudly say there is no justifed reason for this crap. The accomodation space is 150000 thousand for a four beded room its not like we av toilet in this room o we don't even have water early in the mawnin we always have to queue in the bathrooms early in the mawnin. We buy rubbish food at expensive rate . Everything is jst soooooo expensive in dis skul to the extent of having a shop where tins are sold and the woman calls herself Iya Expensive. This is jst a means of exploiting us . I am about quoting what the Registrar of the school said when I called her yesterday. Our dear Mrs Oluborode had the gut and ordersity to say"yes my dear the increase in school fees is true. You know there was jst a SLIGHT increase in the fees due to the expenses the school would have to cover". This is just not FAIR

BLOOD OF GOD!!!!! Wait, so if you eventually graduate does the school immediately offer you a job or make sure your life is excellent? Because at these price, any man could be set up good. Haba! The price is too high, even for a private school, it is even higher than schools in Ghana and the actually teach there. Unless all their lecturers are professors and their lesson plans US standard I don't think it is fair to ask for that much!!

ABUAD is meant for those who can afford d bills. There is So much to be done and money would be used. Monthly Diesel consuption is N50M,salaries are paid to over 1000 staff members etc. Pls students, washing your dirty linen outside is only damaging the image of the schl whose certificates u would carry some day. I know ther is PTF(parents\Teachers Forum), go through that and stop posting funny comments and images of the founder. I understand ur plight but go through the right approach. GREAT ABUAD STUDENT!

Really this is wickedness and lack of consideration on the part of the school's management! I remember how the school was funded from the scratch by rich people, politicians and businessmen alike. Afe Babalola clearly boasted at every opportunity given that it was a non-profit organisation and its even labelled that on its website! We who go to public schools that are for profit dont spend half of that in our duration of study there. Those students should go abroad! Ive been to the school and if u pay such fees for that, then really the value of education in Nigeria has reached an ALL TIME LOW!! The Afe Babalola man is exploiting innocent Nigerians whom he sweettalked into believing the school was a good choice! I pity those who have already spent two years and above in the institution. Something should be done about this!! The rich cannot continue to exploit the general public! #Noreduction #noresumption

†нε school is lk hell. They increase school fees anyhow n still d students dnt ave any say @ all lectures n non accademic staff beat up students as if its a secondary skool. God help nigeria o. Non profit organisation dey say nonsense. Afe babalola YBNL.

What is astronomical about the fees? If you cannot afford it, ship out.....It is a free market of demand and supply; of offer and acceptance..there are other private universities that would charge you far lesser fees; after all your parents believe that if they've not thrown hefty money on your education, then they've not given you the best ...Afe Babablola did not bind you with chains, saying you must pay or nothing...he's operating a private enterprise and not a charity please!!!! I ATTENDED UNILAG FOR BOTH MY FIRST AND LAW DEGREES...AND I AM FINE...HANDSOME AND FAIRLY WELL PAID...I COULDN'T HAVE IMAGINED ATTENDING ANY OTHER NIGERIAN UNIVERSITY!!!!!!!!

And then he goes about telling everyone the school is a non-profit making institution. Non-profit n you raise the fees by 40%?? That man be milking parents mehn!! Fvckd Country....Only God can save us.

Miss lepa shandy I can bet u're in one of those road side colleges abroad, where the name has never been heard of and you stand there saying the students can't speak good english.. The "F" word you are using on the social media is the good english u can speak right? Anyways I don't blame you, that's what you think english is all about.. I'm nt a student of ABUAD but next time you don't takl that way and you don't even know what the future holds yet so don't say your children won't school in one country or the other..

Aziin the management of the school Os crazy! And the 1.2M doesn't include feeding oh. They student buy their food from cafe. a good meal there is noting less than 750/plate. And the stupid 2bedded room they charge 300k doesn't hv AC or private bathrooms, the plumbing is bad(leaking walls),water only runs in d morning,and believe me after tuition fees, they still pay a lot of ridiculous fees like afe shirt, afe scarf.(stupid ppl).when my sister entered the school 3yrs ago,what she paid was below #500k. Now shez in 400l, the man is asking us to bring 1.2M. The man is crazyyyy

With our emormous resources education ought to have been free and compulsory,it's quite unfortunate that what we have today is not what we deserve. Even going through school with high fee does not guarantee jobs. Why are we in this mess? Is it a crime to be a Nigerian? Parents/guardians are under constant pressure to meet up with exorbitant school fees. Lord please help us, this is too much.

Anonymous said...

We aint saying education is expensive but this is mere exploitation, no parent who has the strenght to train their children in private uni will want then to stay at home during ASUU strike, but that notwithstanding. Why ll fee increase by 49%, this isn't fair at all. Let's all put ourselves in the shoes of this parents, no parent who works hard to get his money will be able to pay this without thinking twice.. SAN Afe Babalola will say the school is non profit makin what if it will be?? Pls not all parents are stealin nigeria's money ooo .. No Reduction No Resumption..

Thanks PC, well said. Rly D skul fees is alarming!! For what now?? Ova 1m 4 jes a session?? In a public school, students can protest buh in a private uni you don't av a choice. The students shld meet their parents so they can discuss it during PTA meeting. Bringing it up here will not solve anything. Its a private uni the owner can charge wat he/she likes.

A school hiding under the saying of it bn a philantropist is letting others pay 1.2million per session, how unreasonable can the founder and the management of the school be?

Teamee said...

the way things are going now makes one wonder if education is the sure way- not like it was ever easy. i recall quite clearly with my ears when the owner said the institution was a non-profit org and all the funds raised by top personnel to promote it as also mentioned by Eneje but it seems all that focus is lost now in the founder's eyes. with a careful calculation, 2years fee in that school should equal 4years in a foreign/abroad school-talking of usa and india with all their cheep education programmes.really saddening.......

This is just too much, I did had my bsc from a state university and msc from a federal university. All d school fees I paid during my undergraduate days added to d one I paid for postgraduate is not even up to what they pay in this school in a session before d increase. Na waoh!!!! Hope Afe has jobs for all d school graduates cos it will be heartbreaking to pay all these fees and still be jobless in this country after graduation.

adukeologe said...

Before y'all start complaining about how this only happens in Nigeria, remember tuition fees in the UK skyrocketed by 100 percent and over this year, leading to a 40% drop in university admissions. But at least we were prepared for it at least 2 yrs before it finally happened. The protest and cries of students never helped either. So for people who are quick to compare...

Instead of wating your money on such school, why not add a little to the money to study abraod. The school is not a federal university, its not worth it and it is absolute RUBBISH. because after wasting such amount of money, u will still carry your certificate up and down looking for Job and trust me, most of those organizations also consider the school you graduated from when it comes to recruiting. NONSENSE

I beg to differ. In 2003 when I was @ Uni in d UK my tuition was £1050 up until I graduated in 2006. By 2007/2008 fees had been increased (for new entrants) to £3000 plus (for home students). Even tho I dnt support d 40% increase in Afe B. Uni. It might just be necessary to maintain d level of services being rendered. XxxDesTo

Thank you very much Linda, The problem we the student are having against the school isn't only about the drastic increasement of the school fees, but it was only d height of it, In Abuad we spend a whole lot of money on feeding alone, we spend approximately equivalent of our school fees on feeding, and besides there has been no development in anything about Abuad and they keep on increasing the school fees every year, our hostels are as dirty and stuffy as hell.
