LAUTECH Students Protest in Osogbo over Hike in School Fee



Medical and Nursing students of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Ogbomoso this morning stormed the streets of Osogbo the Osun state Capital to protest what they described as astronomical increase in their schools fees. 

The students who carried placards with inscriptions such as Aregbe /Ajumobi don't privatise LAUTHEC, 250 naira schools fees is too much among others also rendered solidarity songs condemning the insensitivity of the government. 

Leader of the protesting students and protem Chairman of Save Education and Reopen LAUTECH Students Coalition, Mr Fawole Israel said the owner governments had introduced a school fees of 250 ,000 naira for non indigenes and 200,000 for non indigenes from the previous 65 and 70,000 naira hitherto payable in the school. 






Mr Israel argued that the decision was most insensitive for a university that was shut down of over two years for no fault of the students. 

Also speaking, the Vice President of the students' Union, Miss Taiwo Oluwaseun explained that both Oyo and Osun states that owned the institution, were owning workers backlog of salaries, hence the sudden hike in school fees has demonstrated that the governments had no concern for the welfare of the people. 

Miss Oluwaseun said the protest would continue to go own simultaneously in Osun and Oyo states until the governments reverse their decision.
