THE management of Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education (AOCOED) Otto/Ijanikin, Lagos State, has reduced fees for its full-time Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE) students.
A statement made available to The Nation stated that the reduction was arrived at a meeting the institution’s management held with the Students’ Union (SU) executives.
The statement, signed by the Registrar, Mr Shehu Abdulqadri Muhideen, stated that management of AOCOED agreed to the agitation by students for a reduced fee, after a meeting with SU executive late last month.
The students kicked against an upward review of the fees, which was agreed between management and the Parents’ Forum last October.
With effect from the 2017/2018 Academic Session, tuition for 100-level students on regular NCE programme, is N25,000 as against N28,000. The reduced fee covers acceptance fee, administrative charges, ICT levy, biometric ID card, sports, medical, library and teaching practice (TP).
Similarly, 200 and 300 level students would pay N15,000 as against the N18,000 earlier agreed upon at the Parents’Forum. The fee covers administrative, ICT, ID and card, among others.
Other items, such as sports, medical and library, will attract no charge for 200 and 300 level undergraduates.
