A growing debate among the populace in Nigeria is the growing expense of quality education in the country as the chasm between the have and have-nots continues to widen.
Covenant University, recently dubbed the best Private University in Nigeria, released their tuition list to much debate and controversy. The list showed a marked increase from the fees for the 2016/2017 session which has surely priced out some parents and many don’t like this.
It again buttresses the point of those who believe that education in Nigeria is something only the rich can afford which then limits the opportunities of those who don’t have as much.
Below is the tuition for the 2016/2017 session
