OAU SU Leaders Meet Over N100,000 'Professional Fee'

Following the announcement of the N100,000 professional fee to be paid by students at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) College of Health Sciences, the leadership of the university's Students' Union (SU) said it was holding an important meeting on Thursday.

The administration during an academic conference was said to have made the announcement of the payment of the fees which would be effective from the next session as the institution is rounding off its 2021/2022 session.

“Now they said if we like we should call the Students’ Union, that they are ready to close the college, that it is not their time that we would waste,” a medical student who pleaded anonymity told Punch.

A statement by the SU President, Secretary-General, and Public Relations Officer, Olayiwola Festus; Odewale Damilare and Ogunperi Taofeek respectively, confirmed the development.

It added that the union was holding an “emergency meeting.”

“This evening, it was brought to the attention of the leadership of the Union that there is an increment of N100,000 tagged ‘medical professional fees’ in the College of Health Sciences of the University.

“In order to address this issue properly and tackle the increment, and for the benefit of students, the Central Executive Council is holding an emergency meeting immediately,” the statement read.

Comments from the meeting are yet to be received as of the time of filing this report.
