Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) has denied the rumour of school fees increment being peddled in the social media.
A statement from the Head of Information and Public Relations, Chika Gladys Ene, said there was no iota of truth in the rumour.
“The Management of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka has come to note the ‘rumour’ on a purported Increment in tuition fees of returning students of the institution for the 2020/2021 academic session being spread on social media.
“For clarity, the University Management has not increased the tuition for students since harmonizing fees payable by students in 2019; which includes dues such as Faculty, Department, Association and the Convocation fee for graduating classes.
“As such, the news making the rounds of an increment in tuition is not only false but misleading and an attempt to cause unrest in the University.
“We urge our bonafide students, staff and the general public to treat as fake, the news of the purported increment as it remains a false alarm, triggered towards destabilizing the peace being enjoyed in the University,” the statement read.
