The University of Lagos has said that it has yet to increase its tuition, contrary to reports making the rounds .
Deputy Registrar , Mr . Toyin Adebule , said this in a statement made available to our correspondent on Monday .
A statement credited to a group had recently alerted the public to an alleged increment in tuition in federal universities and some state- owned tertiary institutions.
However , Adebule has asked members of the public to discountenance the report .
He said , “ Contrary to the news making the rounds on print , electronic and social media that the University of Lagos has increased its tuition , the university wishes to inform its students , their parents /guardians and the general public that the statement is not true and it is a complete distortion of facts .
“ We want to emphasise here that tuition is free in the University of Lagos . Fresh and returning students are only charged obligatory fees depending on their status . ’’
