The management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has denied charging ₦50,000 for online classes.
The denial was issued in a statement via its website on Saturday, ahead of the resumption of its academic activities.
“The management of the University of Lagos wishes to inform all students, parents, and the general public, that a notice on the internet purporting that returning students of the University of Lagos is to pay a sum of ₦50,000 for online lectures and examinations, is FALSE and should be disregarded,” it wrote.
“All students are to commence online lectures on Monday, January 25, 2021, at absolutely NO COST.
“In the future, it is advised that our esteemed stakeholders and interested individuals kindly check the official UNILAG website and official social media platforms for verified information about the university.”
Earlier, UNILAG fixed the resumption of its 2019/2020 academic session for January 25 after the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) ended its nine-month strike last December.
