Nigeria: University of Ibadan Resumes January 7

As the 2012/2013 academic session for students of the University of Ibadan (UI) has been billed to commence on Monday, January 7, 2013, controversy has continued to trail a purported move by the university to increase students' accommodation fee on resumption.

The resumption date was disclosed at a meeting between the institution's management led by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Isaac Adewole and the Students' Union executives, led by Comrade Edosa Raymond Ekhator and other stakeholders of the institution.

After an extensive discussion with the management, the students' representatives were informed by the VC, Prof. Adewole, of five criteria if students' accommodation fee will remain #14,000 per bed space. Out of the five positions stated by Vice-chancellor, the fourth one, which raised dust was massively rejected by Students' Union executives.
