The authorities of the University of Lagos have denied charging ₦50,000 for online classes.

This was stated in a statement issued on UNILAG’s website on Saturday.

“The Management of University of Lagos wishes to inform all students, parents and the general public, that a notice on the internet purporting that returning students of the University of Lagos are to pay a sum of ₦50,000 for online lectures and examinations, is FALSE and should be disregarded,” the statement read.

UNILAG’s resumption followed the end of a nine-month industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
