UNILAG Denies Asking Students To Pay N50,000 For Online Classes

UNILAG has urged students and parents to debunk the claim saying lectures would commence on January 25, at no cost.

As the University of Lagos (UNILAG) prepares to resume academic activities, the management of the institution has denied asking students to pay N50,000 for online classes.

The university management had recently announced Monday, January 25, 2021, as the resumption date for academic activities

In a statement released on Wednesday, January 13, the university’s Head of the Media Unit, Mrs Olufadeke Akinleye said the institution would commence online classes on the announced date due to the second wave of COVID-19.

However, days after the university revised its academic calendar, a report claimed that returning students are expected to pay N50,000 for classes.

Reacting to this, the institution in a statement titled, ‘Disclaimer: UNILAG resumption is absolutely free’, urged students and parents to ignore the claim, saying lectures would commence on January 25, at no cost.

“All students are to commence online lectures on Monday, January 25, 2021, at absolutely NO COST.

“In the future, it is advised that our esteemed stakeholders and interested individuals kindly check the official University of Lagos website and official social media platforms for verified information about the University.”
