The institution noted that the fee modification which takes effect from the 2023/2024 academic session has been established to ensure a fair and balanced fee structure throughout the university’s faculties.

With this announcement, the OAU joins some other federal universities that have increased tuition fees recently.

The move comes in the wake of a protest by students of the University of Lagos over the hike in tuition fees by the institution.

Their counterparts at the University of Jos also came out en masse to protest the hike in tuition fees with students from both institutions calling on concerned parties to come to their aid.
