FUOYE Disowns Admission Fees Notice On Social Media, Warn Students

The Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), Ekiti State has warned candidates seeking admission into the Institution of the antics of fraudsters who are demanding money in exchange for admission slots into the school.

The warning follows a trending directive on social media advising prospective students to pay N15, 000 for admission slots into FUOYE.

The school’s management warned that the said notice on social media did not originate from the institution, describing it as fake and the handiwork of fraudsters.

The fraudsters in a forged letterhead of the Institution had asked prospective students and admission seekers to fill a form with their names, preferred course, alternative course, JAMB Registration Number, State of Origin, LGA, JAMB Score and N15,000 registration fee for approval into the registrar’s account.

Particularly, the fraudsters said, “Kindly fill this admission slot form and submit it to the registrar with fifteen thousand naira (N15, 000) registration fee for approval.”

But a statement signed by the University’s Public Relations Officer, Foluso Ogunmodede, asked the public to disregard the information as the admission into the university was not a cash and carry process but strictly on merit and excellence.

The release reads: “The attention of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State has been drawn to an admission form which has gone viral on social media, asking prospective students and admission seekers to pay N15,000 into the registrar’s account as registration fee for approval.

“This is the handiwork of fraudsters as the University which placed a premium on excellence and merit will not require students or admission seekers to pay N15,000 into any unauthorized account.

“We disassociate ourselves from these fraudulent and the purported admission fraud while warning admission seekers to disregard this as emanating from the university.

“The university did not authorize the viral admission fraud and we have no intention to charge admission seekers for any admission form”.
