In a WhatsApp conversation with the Press of the Association of Faculty of Arts Students (AFAS), the VC divulged that the imposed compulsory Technology Levy is to be utilized to provide robust internet services for students.

He, Prof. Idowu, said that the new levy will cover the expenses of providing fast, reliable and robust internet services for students, and will require a whole lot in terms of funds.

In his words,

“We are committed to providing fast, reliable and robust internet services to students.
“The University is opening up internet access to students on campus (to a capped volume per student per semester/session). As such there is an on-going investment on additional network infrastructure/ bandwidth.
“The bandwidth is projected to be increased in the first instance from the present 475 to 775 Mbps. It is worth mentioning that the bandwidth increase will be dedicated to the new student network.
“The bandwidth cost will grow from N64M to about N100M. This is excluding other required network infrastructural upgrade. I do hope this clarification helps in providing justification for the Technology Fee”.
