Crawford University, Igbesa, Ogun, on Friday refuted media reports on the increment of tuition fees by the institution.

The university’s Head of Public Relations Department, Layi Olajumoke, said in a statement in Lagos that the news going round about the increment was falsehood.

“The attention of the management of our institution has been drawn to a slew of press reports about Crawford University being among some institutions drastically increasing their tuition fees.

“As a result of this, we have been inundated with enquiries from anxious parents and prospective students as to the veracity of this story.

“But for those students and parents who would not bother to ask, we think it good to come out and unequivocally tell the public that there is no increase in our fee structure for now.

“The news broke about a fortnight ago that some public and private higher institutions across the country has drastically increased fees due to the economic condition in the nation,’’ it said.

The statement added that the institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Rotimi Ajayi, had been a strident voice in the argument for proper and optimal financing of higher education.

“The management team of the university strongly feels that the institution should maintain the current fees structure so as to grant more access for serious students and discerning parents.

“We want to accommodate those who want their wards to undergo academic training in a Christian university with a strong academic tradition, self-reliance, leadership and entrepreneurship training, ’’ the statement said.
