Again, UNILAG students stage protest over tuition hike

Some students of the University of Lagos hit the streets on Wednesday to protest the increment in tuition fees of the institution.

This is the second protest in one week by the UNILAG students who are joined by colleagues from other universities

The protesters hit the street with chants centrally on the need for the school authorities to reduce the fees.

The students were accompanied by the men of the Nigerian police Force and those of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

Some of the students who spoke with newsmen said they will continue to protest until their school fees are returned to status quo.

They said the hike in their fees did not have human face.

They are also asking the Federal Government to invest the proceeds from the subsidy removal on education rather than allow any increment in school fees.

The UNILAG authorities had in July announced hike tuition fees for new and returning undergraduate students.

The the institution had hinged the move on what it described as the “prevailing economic realities”.
