‘We Didn’t Extort Students’- UNILORIN Speaks On Top-up Convocation Fee

The management of the University of Ilorin has stated that it did not exploit the graduating class of 2020/2021 who were told to top-up their convocation fee and pay for memorabilia charges.

Recall that the graduating class protested over the top-up and charges introduced by the institution as part of the requirements to participate in the forthcoming combined convocation ceremony, describing it as extortion.

The event, scheduled to hold between October 20 and 21, 2023 will host the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 graduating classes.

A statement by the Director of Corporate Affairs, Kunle Akogun, stated that the management has the right to determine what materials are necessary and at the most reasonable rates for its students or graduates.
