The Federal Government increased the tuition for new students at Federal Government Colleges, also known as Federal Unity Colleges, to N100,000 through the Federal Ministry of Education.

This is coming after the House of Representatives in a report requested that the federal government halt any increases in tuition at federally funded universities.
