Taraba state Governor slashes state university school fees by 50 percent
By Jennifer S Kuwanta
Taraba state governor Agbu Kefas has ordered the immediate reduction of school fees at the state university by fifty per cent.
Kefas who paid an unscheduled visit to the state university to assess the state of the institution, said he decided to slash the university school fees to cushion the devastating effects of subsidy removal by the federal government which has made some of the students unable to pay their fees.
The Governor also discovered that a total of 53 courses offered in the institution are without accreditation. There is also a hike in school fees and poor student hostels.
Kefas also ordered a report on why some graduates of the institution do not go for NYSC or law school when he met the management of the institution.
