OSUSTECH Students Protest Against Hike in School Fees, School Shut.

Students of the Ondo State University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH), Okitipupa, Ondo state, on Monday disrupted academic and other administrative activities on the campus as they protested against what they described as outrageous school fees introduced by the management.

The protest came few days after that of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), which forced its management to close down the institution and ordered students to vacate the campus premises.

In reaction to the protest, the authority of the institution shut down the school and asked the students to proceed on two-week mid-semester break.

During the protest, it was gathered that the students, most of whom were in 200 level, called on the school management to accede to their demands.

One of the students said: “We are protesting against the management because the school fees we are paying is too much.

“What we paid last year was between N150, 000 and N200, 000 being new students and now that we are in 200 levels the fee should at least be reduced.

“The management is saying we are paying the same amount we paid last year, hence the reason for the protest.”
