Students protest increase in tuition
The students said they are against the school’s new policy of ‘no fee, no examination.'
The protest which started around 4:30am had caused the students to stop vehicular and human traffic on the East-West road.
The students said they would continue until they were addressed by the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Sunday Lale.
The school was scheduled to commence examinations today.
A student spoke to DailyPost, expressing the reason for the protest.
"We pay the highest amount of school fees in Nigeria. Among all the Federal Universities in this country, UNIPORT pays highest. They will still ask us to pay faculty dues, departmental dues, exam registration fees and many others.
We are sick and tired of all these payments. They even went ahead to issue a deadline for these payments not considering that things are hard for our parents.
We decided to embark on this protest today because 1st semester exams are supposed to start today and what we have done is to stop it from holding."
