The Vice Chancellor was also asked about freshmen who have been seeing #40,000.00 on their portals. In response, he replied that, “that must have been a mistake. We will sort that out.”
Early this morning, April 25th, a screenshot of mode of payment from the university portal revealing #40,000.00 as the accommodation fee has been in circulation. This has caused unrest amongst students who thought another hike in fee has just occurred following the most recent which happened last year.
