Maintain Fees For Last Academic Year For Now – Council To Public Universities

The National Council for Tertiary Education Monday asked the Management, of public institutions to maintain the 2016/2017 Academic Year levels of fees and charges; while Parliamentary approval is sought for any adjustments for this academic year.

A statement issued by the Council, and signed by the Executive Secretary, Professor Mohamed Salifu, said: “The proposed fees and charges for the 2017/2018 Academic Year have been collated for consideration and approval by Parliament.”

“This is in accordance with the requirements of the Fees and Charges (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009 (Act 793) and Amendment Instrument 2016 (L.I.2228).”

It said following the decision of Parliament on the proposals, some adjustments may need to be made to the 2016/2017 levels to reflect the approved levels for implementation.

The Council, therefore, urged all stakeholders, including the Management of public institutions, prospective and continuing students and the public to take due notice and comply with the directive.

“…considering that this may take a while and in order not to unduly delay the reopening of tertiary education institutions for the 2017/2018 academic year, you are advised to ensure that your fees and charges in the meantime reflect same levels as in the 2016/2017 academic year.”

The Chairman of the Subsidiary Legislation Committee of Parliament, Mr Mahama Ayariga, has threatened legal action should the due process of law not be followed in getting the 2017/2018 fees and charges approved by Parliament.
