Benue varsity VC denies plans to increase fees
Vice Chancellor, Benue State University (BSU), Professor Msugh Moses Kembe, has debunked claims in some quarters that the institution has reviewed upwardly, fees payable by students of the school.
Kembe, in a chat with journalists in the institution, said such action has not even been conceived, just as he explained that only conditional charges for new intakes and graduates have been reviewed.
“In order to shore up the internally generated revenue so as to meet up with the ever-increasing cost of running the university on daily a basis, we sought and obtained the approval of the Benue State government for an upward review of “conditional charges. I wish to lay emphasis here that this review only affects new intakes and graduates. Returning students are not in any way affected by this review,” the vice chancellor stated.
He hinted that as a motivational strategy, the management of the institution has commenced the award of scholarship to 18 best performing undergraduate students of the university in various disciplines; in line with the earlier approval of the university council and senate to boost the morale of students in academics.
Kembe intimated that towards enhanced quality delivery in the institution as well as due process, management has established a procurement unit and would soon upgrade it to a directorate in line with best practices.
