Students Give Governor Akeredolu, UNIMED VC 72 Hours To Reverse N2million School Fees

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has issued a 72-hour ultimatum to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and Vice-Chancellor Adesegun Fatusi of Ondo Medical University to lower the tuition fees of students.

The student wants the school to return the tuition fee to the original fee.

The management of state-owned universities recently announced that the institution now charges more than 2 million non-indigenous students, while indigenes will pay more than N1.5 million for medical courses.

Comrade Omotoso, chairman of NANS Ondo JCC, describes the new fees as “outrageous” saying that parents cannot afford them.

He called on the government and school management to review the fees down.

“It is disheartening and sardonic to have heard of the satanic increment in tuition fees”

“It should be noted that a letter was written and submitted to the school management in order to have a way forward to peacefully, amicably and intellectually iron things out without no menace and shutting down of this campus (UNIMED) but we are saddened and baffled by the display of unprofessionalism and incompetence of the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adesegun Fatusi.

“At first we were disappointed because no sane management would boycott dialogue that would have curbed for instance; closure of the school among others. Professor Adesegun failed to honour the meeting with the leadership of NANS and this to us is an act of not just negligence of duty but a show of shame, incompetence, lack of integrity, misplaced priority and failure.

“Professor Adesegun proved to the world, not just the leadership of NANS or Nigerian students how shallow his reasoning can be the moment he sent the officers of Amotekun to disperse the leadership of NANS.

“This to us is hilarious but then it shows the Vice-Chancellor cannot in any way defend the increment. The VC that asked that the campus be locked down on the arrival of NANS leadership to have a peaceful meeting with him could call Amotekun corps to disperse student leaders who came solely for consultations.

“The VC Professor Adesegun has shown his level of cluelessness and incapability to steer the affairs of UNIMED because even before now we did not expect any institution to solely depend on students to generate internal revenues (IGR).

“At this juncture, it is imperative to emphatically and unequivocally enjoin the Vice-Chancellor to do the needful in the next 72 hours otherwise we will be left with no choice but to resolve to the last ‘C’ of Aluta which is confrontation,” he said.
