Acting ADSU VC suspends collection of entrepreneurship fees

27 November 2015, 15:06

The Acting Vice Chancellor of the Adamawa State University, Mubi, Dr Moses Zaruwa,  on Thursday said that the University Senate under his administration has suspended the N1000 fees slammed on students for Entrepreneurship Programme.

Zaruwa made this known while speaking with newsmen in Yola.

He said that the Senate had considered the economic situation of the students and suspended the fee to reduce the heavy burden borne by the students who are mostly indigent.

According to him, the management will have to consult with the students for a more affordable and acceptable fees for the programme before fixing any new amount.

Zaruwa explained that the TETFUND had provided infrastructure for the programme, adding that the university may not need much money for its practical.

The Acting Vice Chancellor said that the senate would also review the general tuition fee for student in due course.

"If we said we will compare ADSU with universities like BUK, Nsukka and others in fixing fees, we should as well consider the economy of those institutions."

"We must bring initiatives that could attract best brains from other parts of the world."

"If we charge lesser fees for some of our programmes, it will attract best brains from other places."

"Even in America, universities do things to attract best brains elsewhere and that is why we want to introduce some programmes that can be peculiar to our own university and environment."

"We are about to introduce new courses in the university to expand the academic capacity of the institution, and we intend to introduce courses like sociology, Psychology, etc.  which were not here before."

"As a matter of fact, I am already making modalities and consulting with relevant stakeholders on the possibility of establishing a trauma centre in this university."

Zaruwa said that he has also initiated a peace and reconciliation committee which had sought submission of memoranda from all concerned members of the university community.

He said that the initiative was to reconcile the aggrieved members of the community with a view to forge ahead.

"Upon my assumption of duty, I constituted a peace and reconciliation committee with the view to reconciling and addressing the grievances of the perceived aggrieved members of staff of the university."

"The membership of the committee is drawn from representatives of  ASUU, SSANU, a representatives of the Emir, Ministry of Higher Education, as well as both Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Islamic Council of Nigeria (ICN) among others."
