#500,000 thousand university tuition fee, Asuu reject proposal

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has rejected the
hiking of school fees of university students as proposed by Dr Wale
Babalakin, the chief government negotiator in the ASUU/Federal
Government renegotiation exercise.
Prof. Lawan Abubakar, the Bauchi Zonal Coordinator of the Union
made the disclosure at a press conference in Jos, the Plateau
State capital.
Abubakar said, “One of the major issues our union wishes to bring
to public domain is the wild idea of sharing the cost of education
between the government and parents proposed by Dr. Wale
Babalakin. This idea of sharing the cost of education since
government alone cannot fund education, and that parents need to
pay for it too.
“He proposed a minimum of N350, 000 as tuition fee for
undergraduate students of Arts and Humanities, and N500, 000, for
those in Sciences.
“Our union rejected the proposal based on the fact that the
constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria clearly states that
funding education is the sole responsibility of Governments at
various levels and not parents,” he maintained.

Is it right for Federal Government to dialogue and compensate killer herdsmen and bandits?
