  5. Of the greatest ife students! Aluta always dey run for Una blood .anyway this is another challange. We all know education is expensive even in abroad but lets take for example united states. The system makes it easy for the students to go to school there is students loans,government grants and schlolarships for students. Even students go to school and still work but our own nails everything is difficult to get money many people are jobless,many parents are not working where on earth do they want them to get such amount of money from? I remember when i was in ife that we were paying 5000 naira for school fees many parents could not still afford to pay please something urgent should be done to this matter

  6. please nobody should compare ife to schools that are paying exuberant fees we all know ife has been a school with low school fees rate compare to other schools in Nigeria and that’s why many poor students work so hard to read and pass then secure admission there so OAU should never compare itself to other paying so high. Of the greatest ife students oooo
