Students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, have protested the 100 percent hike in their school fees.
The university administration had reportedly published a memo on Thursday specifying categories of fees to be paid by its students.
The memo indicated that fresh students across the faculties in the university are to pay a consolidated fee of N114,650 – N120,650, while older students are expected to pay between N85,000 – N95,000.
It was gathered that before the new development, old students in the institution paid a fee of N40,000, and new students N83,000.
Speaking on the development, a member of the Student Union Government, SUG, who did not want his name mentioned, said the students are uncomfortable with the increase.
“The students’ reaction is simple – we are not comfortable with the increment; even though the increment is inevitable, the amount they increased it to is too high. They doubled it, like a 105 percent increment, so it’s much.
“That is what we are agitating for – there should be a reduction. And compared to other federal universities, you would see that we pay higher unless we do not go on strike again. Unless we are going to take up the responsibility of settling ASUU and all that, we won’t be going on strike like other federal universities, then the amount is ok. Students are saying that if we will not be going on strike, the amount is ok,” he said.
Meanwhile, the university PRO said he was out of town and was unable to comment on the development.
BREAKING: 14 Kogi Poly students expelled for alleged Exam misconduct, 185 withdrawn for poor academic performance (Full List)
The academic board of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja has approved the withdrawal of 185 students from various schools and departments for poor academic performance in the second semester of the 2021/2022 academic session.
This was part of far reaching decisions at the 13th emergency meeting of the Board held on Tuesday in Lokoja.
The Board led by its chairman, Dr. Salisu Ogbo Usman approved the reports of the Results Verification Committee led by the Deputy Rector, Dr. Kehinde Felix Lamidi.
The board frowned at students performing below academic standard despite providing conducive atmosphere for learning and charged them to redouble their efforts and be more focused in their academic pursuit.
Meanwhile, fourteen students have been expelled from the Polytechnic on account of examination misconduct and related offences.
The Board approved the expulsion having been satisfied with the reports of the Central Examination Misconduct Committee led by Mrs. Grace Ehimony.
Other decisions reached by the Board on Examination Misconduct cases include the exoneration of two, written warning to 2 students, three students to be rusticated for one semester and seventeen students asked to carry over courses they were charged with in an offence.
Dr. Usman, who commended the Board’s Central Examination Misconduct committee and those of schools and departments for a thorough job, called for synergy among the committees so as to make decisive resolutions capable of raising the quality of teaching and learning at the Polytechnic.
He equally reassured the Polytechnic community of the Board and Management’s continued resolve to make reforms that would be beneficial to all stakeholders identified with the institution.

ASUU receives full salaries for November, arrears withheld
Lecturers under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universities have received full salaries for the month of November 2022.
It was also gathered that the eight month arrears remained withheld by the Federal Government.
A senior member of the union at the Bayero University Kano made this known in an interview with The Punch in Abuja on Wednesday.
The source was quoted as saying: “Some of our members have started receiving salaries and I can confirm to you that we received our full salaries for the month of November. However, the arrears are still withheld.”
The Federal Government had refused to pay the striking lecturers for the eight months which the union embarked on strike.
The lecturers, in October 2022 were also paid pro-rata (half-pay) according to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.
Lecturers across the country have been protesting against this decision by the Federal Government.
The National Executive Council of the union is expected to hold a crucial meeting in the coming days over the withheld salaries.
Fresh crisis looms in public varsities – Unilorin ASUU
Following the resumption of duty after their eight months of strike action, the federal government implemented the ‘No Work, No Pay’ policy with half salaries reflected in their October pay packet.
The University of Ilorin chapter, at a press conference in Ilorin on Monday, threatened a showdown with the federal government should the authorities fail to address the lingering ‘No Work, No Pay’ controversial policy.
Secretary of the Union, Dr Abdulganiyu Olatunji, who briefed newsmen on behalf of the chairman, Professor Moyosore Ajao, urged stakeholders in the education sector to heed the warning of ASUU or risk unpleasant consequences of the ‘No Work, No Pay’ policy of the government.
He berated the ignoble stance of the government for withholding the eight months’ salaries of the university teachers based on the “ill-advised ‘No Work, No Pay’ policy.
The union declared that the policy is set to trigger fresh crises.
According to him: “In the coming days, the Union would respond by considering to invoke ‘No Pay, No Work’ and would abandon the works that have accumulated for those periods which government has falsely claimed through Chris Ngige, that our members have not worked.”
The union explained informed the public to take this notice again that a fresh crisis which would surpass all previous ones, is looming again in Nigeria stating that members of the union cannot and would not continue to do free work that would not be renumerated.
“We hope that with this notice, all relevant stakeholders, who have the ears of government would act fast before the fragile peace restored on the campuses nationwide collapses,” he stated.
The union expressed its resolve to continue to call the attention of government to its responsibilities despite the treatment meted out to it by the government.
“We have heeded the directive of the National Industrial Court, which directed that we resume our duty posts while the substantive matter is being heard,” he stated.
Dr Abdulganiyu further noted that it was to their utmost dismay that after the resumption, government decided to pay half salary for the month of October.
“This development is unacceptable and would be resisted by our union. The fact is that academics are not casual workers, only casual workers receive pay pro-rate.
” The law of the land is also clear on this, indeed, the National Industrial Court, made it clear in a landmark judgment in 2020 that tenured staff cannot be paid pro-rata,” Dr Abdulganiyu declared.
He commended the courage and sacrifice of the union members in the course of the struggle, assuring that their sacrifice shall never be in vain.
