University of Jos, UNIJOS Governing Council directs the implementation of the N45,000 school charges and reinstatement of dissolved Student
The 12th Governing Council of the University of Jos has directed the immediate implementation of the
Federal Government approved school charges of Forty-Five Thousand Naira (N45,000) for all
Federal Universities. Council directed the University Management to implement the payment across all levels of studentship for undergraduates in the University.
The Governing Council’s decision was made during its 11th Regular Meeting. Council deliberated
extensively on issues surrounding the implementation of school charges as directed by the
Federal Government and met with Exco members of the Unijos Branch of the Academic Staff Union of
Council observed that an earlier memo conveying resolutions reached with Staff Unions over the
payment of school charges by Students was not authorized by it or the Federal Government and
therefore should be disregarded.
In a bid to resolve some of the lingering issues regarding the school charges, Council further directed that the dissolved Students’ Union Government of the University should be reinstated.
This is subject to the condition that each member of the dissolved
SUG writes a letter of apology to the University Management for tarnishing the image of the
University in the public domain, that each dissolved SUG member pledges to be of good behavior and to maintain good discipline and that they do not introduce any discussion on the approved new
school charges of Forty-Five Thousand Naira (N45,000).
Council similarly enjoined Management and Unions
of the University to work harmoniously through constant interaction for the growth and development of the institution.
