President Bola Tinubu on Monday directed the authorities in all federal institutions of higher learning to avoid arbitrary increase in sundry fees payable and where possible defer further increase so that parents and students don’t face too many difficulties.

He also approved the provision of buses to the students’ bodies of all universities, polytechnics and colleges of education across the country.

Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communications and Strategy, Dele Alake, disclosed this in a statement he signed on Monday titled ‘FG ready to provide buses for higher education students, removes restrictions on students’ loans’.

Alake said this was in line with the President’s desire to “see that students can access their campuses without much difficulty as a result of higher transportation costs.”

More details shortly…
