Fees Increment Crisis: Delta State Governor Intervention Restores Peace in DELSU

The recent crisis on fee increment in the Delta State University, (DELSU), Abraka has been resolved by the State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.

Governor Okowa has clarified that the increment does not affect students of Delta origin as they will still pay the approved tuition.

He said that students of Delta origin did not pay for tuition but only for other development levies and called on the people to show understanding with the government as fees could not remain the same over the years.

The fees being collected by the state-owned tertiary institutions were for some critical aspects concerning standards in the schools.

His words: “From the beginning we made it clear that it is in the best interest of the state that we upgrade some of our institutions and that we have done to ensure that our children have access to higher education. 

“We are at very tough times in our nation now, but our students who couldn’t get admissions here have had to get admissions into private universities where they pay over a million naira. 

“Some have even left the shores of Nigeria to other countries whose standard of education are not up to what we have here and some to other West African countries into mushroom universities where they pay a lot more. 

“We are very mindful of this but also why we want to appreciate the economic situation in our nation and we know that parents and students are struggling through but we also want to be sure that the universities are maintaining a minimum standard. 

“It is very important to maintain standard so that you don’t find yourself going through an educational institution and at the end you are not actually given the right academic capacity to be able to function outside the institution.” 

According to him, the state government pays the salaries and allowances of lecturers and other university staff, but the universities should be able to handle their day-to-day running cost.
