He added that the government was committed to guaranteeing quality education for all, adding that increase in the fee will negate the commitment.

He further disclosed that the government was engaging with ASUU and other stakeholders to bring about recommendations on how to fund the nation’s tertiary institutions without heaping much load on parents noting that the establishment of an Education Bank was already in the pipeline which will provide students with loans and other resources through a public-private partnership.
