FCE Akoka increases acceptance fee by 500 percent

Some parents have expressed concern over the 500 per cent hike in the acceptance fee for new students imposed by the Federal College of Education (Technical), Akoka, Lagos.

The parents said the acceptance fee was a strain in the budget for their wards’ education.

One of the parents, who pleaded anonymity, said that only FCE (T), hiked its fee unlike other federal colleges, which acceptance fee was far less.He, therefore, called on the Federal Ministry of Education to intervene by stopping the college from putting parents in difficult situation.

The college had increased the acceptance fees from N5,000 to N50,000 for fresh students.

Another parent, Mr. Folorunso Akinlabi, whose son was admitted into the college last session, said he paid N5,000 as an acceptance fee then.

He said, “I was surprised to hear that the FCE, Akoka raised its acceptance fee to N50,000 this year.

“That is killing! How do you expect a civil servant whose salary, rather than increase, had reduced, to cope with such hike?

“I think government should intervene by calling the provost of the college to order.”

Checks by our correspondent in other FCEs in Ogun and Ondo indicated that the acceptance fee charged by them was far below N50,000.

Fresh NCE students of the Federal College of Education (FCE), Oshiele, Abeokuta paid N12,500 as acceptance fee while the degree students paid N25,000.

A 100-level degree student of the college, who does not want his name in print, said that he paid N25,000 as acceptance fee.

He pleaded with the Federal Government to speak with the college management in order to reduce the fees.

But, the Public Relations Officer of the Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo, Mr. Moses Akinfolayan, said that the college did not charge its new students acceptance fee.

He said that fresh students for NCE 1 of Arts, Languages and Education pay N25,500 as school fee while their degree counterparts pay N55,500 in the 2016/2017 academic session.

Similarly, the Public Relations officer, Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Ijanikin, Lagos State, Odunayo Adebowale, said that the college charge N5,000 as acceptance fee for new students.

He said, “The acceptance fee paid by every new student was N5,000 but they also pay N10,0000 levy for sports, laboratory fees, Identity card and ICT.”

According to him, about 1875 students are admitted into the college this year as against 1,250 admitted in 2015.

Meanwhile, the management of FCE(T), Akoka while confirming the hike in fees for new students, blamed the situation on increment in running cost of the college.

The Deputy Provost of the institution, Mr. Kehinde Olojede, confirmed the hike but said that the N50,000 acceptance fee was for the degree students.

He said that acceptance fee for the NCE programme was increased from N5,000 previously to N20,000 for the new students in the 2016/2017 academic session.

According to him, the increase in the tuition and other fees are unavoidable because of the increase in the running of public utilities in the college.

Olojede added that the dwindling subvention received from the Federal Government also compelled the college management to review upward the acceptance fee.

He said, “The increment is a measure to sustain the system because the subvention from the government is dwindling.

“The costs of running public utilities such as borehole, generator and disposal of refuse by the Lagos State Waste Management (LAWMA) have all gone up.”

According to him, any slight disparity in the amount charged by other colleges compare to FCE (T), Akoka, is because the college is technical school and its programmes are capital intensive.

He said, “The current charge for the degree programme is the same with what students in UNIBEN main campus, with which the college’s degree programmes are affiliated, pay.”

Olojede also cited hike in the cost of processing and regularising admission for the new students in the Joint Admission Matriculation Board office, Abuja as another factor.

He said, “Paper work for regularising admission into the college by JAMB is another factor because most of the candidates did not choose the college as first choice.

“The admission officer had to travel several times to Abuja for the processing and the burden of the expenses had to be spread among the students.”

it was alleged that the criminals consisting of one female and two men were apprehended by residents and stripped naked.

Some of the people suggested setting the kidnappers on fire although it was not known if this threat was carried out as at the time of the report.

Some however criticised the stripping of the suspected kidnapp…

FUTA: Burial of the Deceased Futarian... May God forgive her short comings.

I planned not to broadcast this as I got it yesterday, but I changed my mind... this is not to entertain you but to talk words into your heart.
Futarians lost Funmilayo Talabi yesterday and her burial section held accordingly, am not here this time to confirm what killed her or tell you the Gist you are expecting to read but make you realize some fact about the bases of life.

People die everyday like you already know, but it's in fact a dilemma that we don't appreciate our existence on mother earth. No human writes his/her own death wish except those who commit suicides, so you never can tell whose turn it is whether yours or mine... don't say God forbid because it's fact.

The little I knew about her shocked me as people said more good and wonderful things about her... so what are you? What will people say about your legacy when you are gone? what will the angels report about you? Good or bad, it's left for you to decide... be your self don't be somebody else …

Fire in FUTA as VC's car hit library staff on attempt to escape Mob attack.

Well this incident happened this morning in futa and a lot of stories have been trending about what happened, let's give you the different stories.
First I heard JAC wanted to burn the VC and his driver alive in his car as they were stopped upon entering school, in an act of self defence by the driver to escape, the VC's driver hit a female library staff but and she is currently in the hospital now.
Another source tells us the protesters are already being unreasonable, that they were the one that attacked the VC in his car, trying to break his windscreen and wound him, then the driver hit a library staff on an attempt to escape and save the situation.... unfortunately things went wrong.

So I can conclude from the reports that the VC was attacked and on an attempt to save his life for another day, the driver accidentally hit a staff who is currently receiving treatments in the clinic. And policemen have started to Savage all blocked roads. More pics below.

Video & pics: Futa Dean of students' affairs, FUTASUG President, other union leaders arrested and beaten to pulp by armed policemen.

I was just informed that some armed policemen stormed the Students' affairs division of the Federal University of Technology, Akure this morning to arrest the Dean of student, Prof. Alese, the SUG president, Comrade. Solar and other union leaders.
In the video above you would see the SUG president in a milky brown jalab, as he was followed into the van with rounds of slaps... very unfair.
Reasons for this are still yet affirmed but we think it's due to the action of the Dean and SUG president's recent move (creating a new portal for students registration) in ensuring that futarians resume January 3rd, which is very much against what JAC want... which is the removal of the VC or futa activities die.

From what I saw, the futasug and other Union leaders arrest was framed up... an eye witness said:
"The student affairs office was locked after the new site was created, to cripple the resumption process, on hearing this the Dean of students affairs (prof Alese), ordered the…

FUTA: Prof. Alese Writes Enumero of the incident as JAC Made his Birthday Pullus.

Following the incident in futa this morning, of the arrest of the Dean of student, Prof. Alese, the SUG president, Comrade Solar and other SUG leaders, I received a report statement allegedly written by Prof. Alese on an alumni group.
The Statement gave enumero(details) of the incident... it reads thus:
"I would I have misled you, I was supposed to meet with the leadership of ASUUCoop by 11am this morning at ASUU secretariat to discuss the MOU of the ASUUCOOP hostel. I already invited the students in office for 10.30am to take their input to the meeting and explain the new registration portal to them.

Along the line I was told that my office was padlocked by JAC. I called the Sherrif Deputy to send security and I got a Carpentar to join them to open it. The carpenter came and the students were there for the meeting. As I was coming I branched at the secretariat jus to tell the president that that I would be a bit late.

On getting to the secretariat, I got a distress call that that …
