Governor Ademola Adeleke has approved the reversal of the school fees of Osun State Polytechnic Iree to the initial amount prior to July 2022 Governorship election.
This was contained in a letter addressed to the Acting Rector of the Polytechnic, signed by the Permanent Secretary, of the Ministry of Education, Mr. Adelani Aderinola.
The management of the Polytechnic on Friday, December 16, 2022, also announced its compliance with the directive.
It will be recalled that the tuition fees for fresh students were increased from N67,850 to N112,850 for students offering science-related courses while those offering management-related courses were asked to pay N97,300 from the initial N57,300.
The reversal was approved after the students union leadership of the institution called the attention of the Government to the increment and appealed for it to be reversed.
A statement signed by A.O. Okediya, the Bursar of the polytechnic, said the suspension directive affects only ND 1 and HND 1 students.
Okediya however said other categories of students who are not affected by the development should continue with their payments and registration as expected.
“Following the directive of the State Government, the new fee regime approved by the eighth Governing Council of the institution for the newly admitted students for the 2022/2023 Academic Session, has been suspended pending further directive from the State Government.
“Please note that this directive affects only the ND1 and HND1 students, other categories of students are expected to continue with their payments and registration as expected.”
