The students argued that with the 50 percent slash, they will still have to pay 200 percent increase in their tuition fees.
The student representative body, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Saturday, April 13, 2018, rejected the slash, saying it makes no difference.
The National Public Relations Officer of the students' association, Idowu Odebunmi while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, rejected the slash, saying it makes no difference.
Recall that the students of the university recently protested and threatened to make Ondo state ungovernable for Rotimi Akeredolu if he fails to reverse their school fees which was increased from N30,000 to N180,000.
On Monday, April 9, 2018, the student leaders of AAUA, with solidarity from the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) and National Association of Ondo State Students (NAOSS) mobilised thousands of students to protest against the hike.
The protesting students barricade major roads in the state capital, Akure, causing a lot of traffic as they expressed their displeasure with the state governor.
However, with the government proposed 50 percent reduction in the school fees, the students argued that they would still pay 200 percent increase in their tuition fees.
