The national secretariat of National Association of University Students(NAUS) has condemned the proposed uses this medium to kick against the proposed increment increment in tuition fees at the Federal University of Technology (FUTA), Akure.
Speaking to newsmen on Monday, comrade Alade Abayomi Oldman
NAUS-Deputy Senate President said, ” It has been a rife rumor the past few weeks that an increment in the school fees in all federal Institutions of the federation has been proposed which the Management of FUTA is now leveraging on to validate the devilish rumor.
“The proposed increment, as it was reported to us by some of the Excos of the Student Union of the University who had meeting with the University Management, is supposedly premised on the current state of the economy of the country. However, for better welfarism of our world-class students, the NAUS leaders has kicked against the proposed hike of the school fee.
“We call on The University Managements and Federal Government and all bodies involved to please look into this wrong as it is known to us all that over 200% increments in school fees of any University or Institution in this country with the present economy is uncalled for, preposterous and evil. NAUS, as represented by Comrade Alade Abayomi Oldman in the University has been empowered by the entirety of University students across Nigeria to fight any increment whatsoever in FUTA fees and ensure the welfarism of Nigerian students are protected and ensured”.
The body further called for an halt to any plan to increase tuition in FUTA as failure to do so will be an invite to all Nigerian University students to shutdown all Federal and State roads around FUTA and nationwide by NAUS as soon as the announcements is made official.
Advicesd students to abide by the law and keep calm as the issue is been looked into.
