Ogun State Students Stage Protest, Demand Reduction in Fees

The National Association of Nigerian
Students (NANS), Ogun State chapter
comprising of all students in Ogun State
higher institutions recently were in Oke
Mosan office of Senator Ibikunle Amosun
demanding a reduction on their school
fees.
According to the leader of the group, the
current fees are outrageous and
unjustifiable.
“Presently, Ogun State tertiary
institutions’ fees are outrageous, absurd
and illogical. We cannot keep mute
pretending all is well. Any Nigerian
government that does not pursue free
education at all levels is Nigerian students’
enemy number one.”
“It is highly sympathetic that those who
benefited from Awo’s free education
policy are inflicting pain on us today,” he
said.
The secretary to the state government,
Taiwo Adeoluwa in response appealed to
the students to keep calm that efforts are
on to address their grievances.
The question I can’t help but ask is: Why
is this current issues of hike in school fees
peculiar to higher institutions in the
south-west?
