Students returning from Sudan struggle to pay transfer fee
According to the University of Ilorin, they either pay an additional NGN1 million (US$1,250) transfer or clearance fee in addition to all other tuition payments imposed by the institution or ship out. Others are asking for over NGN500,000, while some unconfirmed reports by the students put the request at NGN2.5 million.
After the successful evacuation of the Nigerian students from the war-torn country, the affected students subsequently scaled the hurdle of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, which confirmed their admission status, only to be told to pay the sum of NGN1 million each before they could resume their studies at the University of Ilorin. The students said they have written “several letters to people in authority within and outside the school, but nothing has come from them”.
