The Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (Mapoly) is facing a potential crisis as stakeholders express concerns over the prolonged delay in releasing tuition fees for the 2023/2024 academic sessions.
ASUP Chairman Tomisin Adegunle described the delay as unfortunate and warned of potential dangers, emphasizing that some students might unknowingly spend their school fees.
Adegunle appealed to both the government and the school management to expedite the resolution on tuition fees before it adversely affects the students.
Expressing frustration over the extended delay, Adegunle questioned why the management and council were taking so long to make the necessary decisions.
He stressed the urgency, stating, “It is now over five weeks since resumption, normally school fees should have been fixed before resumption.”
He highlighted the risk of students spending money they’ve collected before the fees are officially announced, creating problems for both students and their parents.
Adegunle also emphasized the importance of timely agreement between the management and the government, ensuring that students are well-informed about their financial obligations.
He pointed out that the non-release of school fees has led to a lack of seriousness among some students, unaware that the session has begun.
SSANIP Secretary Tunde Abiodun echoed concerns about the institution’s perceived lack of seriousness and potential consequences on student enrollment.
With the Joint Matriculation Board (JAMB) examinations underway, Abiodun cautioned that delayed fee announcements could prompt students to consider alternative institutions, further affecting Mapoly’s enrollment.
Abiodun urged the management and council to act promptly, emphasizing the need to avoid negative effects on the institution.
He stated, “Delay is dangerous, as long as they’re delaying this thing it means that it’s going to have negative effects on the institution.”
He called for transparent communication of the tuition fees to prevent chaos and ensure a smooth academic environment.
NASU Chairman Adeleye Tajudeen also expressed concerns, emphasizing the urgency for the management and the council to act swiftly to prevent the potential loss of students to other institutions.
