The attention of Kwara State University, Malete, has been drawn to insinuations making the rounds on social media that the management of the Institution has increased fees for the 2019/2020 Academic session.
A statement by the acting Vice -Chancellor of the University, Professor Sakah Mahmud, says tuition fees of both indigenes and non indigenes remain unchanged while all sundry charges from the last academic session also remain the same.
According to the Vice Chancellor, the Institution in the last ten years of its existence has maintained the lead as a fast growing Institution premised on academic excellence, research, administrative uprightness, and the promotion of the core values of skills and integrity.
The University helmsman added that, ''We have been determined as management and a workforce to attain a world-class status while placing premium on the welfare of Kwarans and Nigerians as a whole. This can be attested to by our numerous community development efforts, interventions and projects across the State and Nigeria''. We also focus on education that is responsive to the needs of Kwarans and indeed Nigerias. That is why we place emphasis on entrepreneurship and all other programmes which place value on solving societal needs, including the newly introduced course in community development.
He also noted with pride that KWASU has always adhered to the rule of law, acts and laws governing its establishment and operations, and most especially is the commitment to transparency and accountability in all its affairs.
Professor Mahmud used the occasion to reiterate the Institution's commitment to providing first class education in consonance with world class standards, reiterating the fact that School fees have not been increased in any way.
