Following students uproar against alleged upward review of tuition fees and imposition of new fees, the Management of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic has denied the fact that the school fees was changed.
While the management denied increasing the tuition fee, they confirmed the introduction of “registration fee of N20,000”.
In a statement signed by Yemi Ajibola, the spokesperson of the school which was received by our correspondent, the management urged parents and guardians of wards to always visit the school website to confirm the actual rate of fees.
The statement read in part: “Similarly, admission application forms range from N2,000 to N11,000 only, depending on the category of application, either for National Diploma or Higher National Diploma programme.”
“Also, acceptance fee remains N35,500 only, while the newly introduced registration fee of N20,000 only, is for all newly admitted applicants, who are to enjoy the launching of full digital registration process on the Institution’s upgraded portal.”
“Medical screening exercise is compulsory to determine health status of the newly admitted students. This exercise is being carried out at designated registered medical centres outside the campus at a uniform economic rate.”
“Conclusively, the Polytechnic does collect money for Tax Clearance. Students are only expected to present tax receipt/certificate of their Parents or Guardians as evidence for fulfilment of tax obligation.”
“This is a part of requisites for file arrangement during entry registration.”
“Meanwhile, Management wishes all students of the Institution a tremendous success in the ongoing 2nd Semester examination.”
“Parents and Guardians, including general public are urged to visit www.mapoly.edu.ng for general information or contact us via the available social media platforms on the website or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for inquiries.”
