CRUTECH Direct All Returning Students To Pay #Endsars Fees

Cross River State University of Technology, (CRUTECH) management has ordered all returning students to pay fees for Covid-19, pre #EndSars. This was contained in a statement released by the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Ben Ayade on Public Relations, Eugene Upah.   Last October, in his magnanimity, Cross River State Governor Senator Prof. Ben Ayade declared an indefinite suspension of payment of tuition fees for indigent students at the state-owned Cross River State Technology University (CRUTECH).
The State Governor’s order is to ease the strain on parents and guardians created by the suffering caused by the Coronavirus pandemic that devastated the year 2020. This development has generated rancour among both students and guardians whose wards are institutional students.
Let it be known that His Excellency’s indefinite suspension is still in force, however, that directive only affects “tuition fees,” which is a component of the entire fees and constitutes the bulk of the student’s fee schedule across all strata of learning. The summary of other accompanying fees on the invoice for the fee payment is not affected.
As stated today by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Austine Angba, University Management is 100 percent ready to implement the Governor’s Directive once critical modalities are developed by the state government and management of the institution that will be used to implement the Directive. Once these indices are completed, implementation processes will begin and the tuition fees will be automatic
Returning students are strongly advised to pay off the pre #Covid-19 2019/2020, pre #EndSars fees that were already in place where over 60 percent of the students had paid while the institution’s management is doing a mathematical workout from the Governor starting from the 2020/21 academic session for the tuition-free directive. For the sake of emphasis, the ‘no fees, no exams’ directive is issued I have attached a sample of the fee payment invoice of the students for further clarification, the part circled in red is the tuition referred to by the pronouncement of the governor. Pending further directives from the state authorities to the institution, other fees must be paid in full.
I pray this brings the much discussed point to rest. The Snr. Special Assistant to Cross River Governor Ben Ayade on Public Communications is © Eugene Upah. About
