THE NEWSGHOST, NIGERIA – Professor Eyitayo Ogungbenro Ogunbodede, the Vice-Chancellor (VC) of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife, has reacted to the rumours circulating over the media that there was an increase in the university’s fees.
Ogunbodede said there is not going to be increase in the fees this session and the next session, he explained that the management is not even planning to increase the fees.
The professor said he wondered why someone would just be circulating fake news around, report says.
‘There is nothing like fee increment. The management has said nothing like that. People are just been mysterious and by this they spread false news around.
‘I wonder how someone would just sit in his room and come up with a propoganda like that. People are just delighted in carrying fake news around and people get to believe that easily without getting the source or getting to know if it’s right or wrong.’
Speaking further, he added that, ‘There is nothing like that, it’s just a lie. I don’t think there would be something like that in the session and the one that follows. It is not even in the plan of the university management.’
