Why we stopped N20,000 late registration fee - UNIBEN VC


The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Lilian Salami, stated this at a news conference on Friday in Benin. 

Salami noted that the institution's senate reversed the decision due to the outcry from students. 

The institution said that less than 25 per cent of student's register on time was reason for introduction of the fee.

"UNIBEN is resilient and we will continue to move forward with a strong conviction to ensure that the university reaches its full potential as a premier academic institution." 

According to her, timely registration provides insight into the students' volume/demand and allows for smarter planning to ensure that there are enough staff, courses and funding to support students accordingly.  

At this time, the N20,000 late fee is reversed and it is a closed case. 

The announcement saw significant growth in early registrations from 2020 rate of 35 per cent to 93 per cent. 

Recall that, the University of Benin students on Tuesday protested over an increase in tuition fees by the school's management.
The management had previously announced that students who did not pay their fees within the specified time frame would be subject to additional charges, read here.
