The State government and the AAUA governing council had last week approved increase in the school’s tuition from average of #30,000 to #180,000/#200,000.

In an interview with newsmen, the Chairman, AAUA Governing Council, Dr Tunji Abayomi said the University was facing financial crunch and if the tuition was not increased, it could lead to the collapse of the Institution in no distant time.

Dr Abayomi who was accompanied by the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Igbekele Ajibefun, called on the students and parents to show understanding in order to move the school to a greater height.
