UniJos Students Protest Hike in Fees

 

 

 

Students of the University of Jos, Jos, Nigeria yesterday embarked on a mass protest to halt plans by the management to increase “development fees”. The students, reportedly in their thousands, stormed the main campus of the University causing a disruption in academic activities, including the second semester examinations scheduled to commence on Monday, 24th day of November, 2014.

Based on the new plans, students are to pay an additional amount of N10, 000 as development levy, while newly admitted students are to pay N25, 000 as acceptance fees, starting from next session.

According to the President of the UniJos Students Union Government,

 “We are calling for the removal of Ten thousand Naira (N10, 000) development levy from our school fees, we are also calling for the reduction of N25, 000 acceptance fees for admission.”

According to him, UniJos students pay the highest development levy in the northern part of the country, including acceptance fees.

Meanwhile, Vice chancellor of the University Professor Hayward Mufuyai while addressing journalists yesterday in Jos, called on the students to disregard the rumours about plans to increase fees. “There is absolutely no plans by the University of Jos to review any school fees”, he said.
