Following the over 100% hike in school fees, students of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology have said they won’t pay the new tuition

The University management in an email sent to the students on Monday, October 15, 2018, said the hike will take effect from the 2018/19 session

Having announced the new tuition, returning students who are indigenes of Oyo and Osun state will be paying N200,000 while non-indigenes are to pay N250,000

However, the students have protested against the hike saying they can’t pay the fees

Reacting to the fee hike, the institution’s Students Union President, Abiodun Oluwaseun while speaking with Sahara Reporters describe the school management and state government’s decision as wicked and insensitive

“Our students find it very difficult to pay the N65,000; they pasted debtors’ list of over 4,000 students. Now, they have come up with this ridiculous amount. The stand of our union remains that we will not accept a kobo added to the tuition fee

“The government should live up to their responsibility and give due subventions to the university; we will resist this anti-people policy with our last breath. If for this cause I die, let it be; we are ready for them; we will not be intimidated by the Police or other machinery they want to use against us, and we will seek legal redress soon”

Ladoke Akintola University was established in 1990 by the government of Oyo and Osun state
