"Government should increase fees in public Universities so that students might opt for private institutions" - JABU VC

The Vice Chancellor of the Joseph Ayo Babalola University, (JABU) Ikeji-Arakeji, Osun State, Prof Sola Fajana has blamed the declining rate of students applying into private universities on the poor economic situation in the country.

Fajana advocated the narrowing down the gap between private and public university fees as he believes this will encourage more parents to consider private universities for their wards.

He urged the government to consider an upward review of the fees payable by students in public universities as this will cause parents will consider the advantages inherent in patronizing private institutions.

Professor Fajana noted that JABU has taken care of ravaging joblessness among graduates as all graduates of the institution are already trained in entrepreneurial skills thereby creating rooms for diversification by graduands.
