Kaduna university students to sit for semester exams despite unpaid fees

Students of Kaduna State University were allowed to write their semester examinations despite unpaid school fees for 2023/2024 academic session.

The university authority, which disclosed this in a statement, said the development followed a directive by Governor Uba Sani, aimed at lessening the impact of the current economic hardship on the students.

DAILY POST recalls that the previous government under the leadership of former Governor Nasir El-rufai, had in 2023 increased school fees by 100 per cent.

Several students had voluntarily withdrawn due to their inability to pay the school fees, while those who continue with their academic studies are finding it difficult to pay.

Following this, Governor Uba Sani had announced the downward review of fees payable in state-owned tertiary institutions.

The statement said: “The management wishes to notify both new and returning students for the 2023/2024 academic session that they can now write the forthcoming examinations irrespective of whether or not they have paid their school fees.

“This is in line with the visionary policy of the Executive Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Uba Sani, geared towards mitigating the current economic challenges faced by students.”

The statement added that the university Bursar’s office is open for further information and inquiries regarding the temporary clearance policy.

“However, for those students wishing to pay their school fees, the payment channels remain unchanged,” it added.
