NANS Condemns Sharp Increase In EKSU Tuition, Issues 72 Hours Ultimatum For Reversal


The National Association Of Nigerian Students (NANS), Office of the National Vice-President External Affairs, on Wednesday frowned at the sharp increase in the tuition payable by students of Ekiti State University (EKSU).

NANS in a state statement issued by the Office of the National Vice President, External Affairs and signed by its National Vice-President External Affairs, Comrade Akinteye Babatunde cautioned Governor Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji, Vice Chancellor, Prof. Edward Olanipekun, and all concerned stakeholders to as a matter of urgency look into this critical issue and reverse the tuition regime described as anti-students decision within 72 hours.

The statement titled: “NANS Frown at Astronomical, Unsympathetic and Discourteous Increment in Ekiti State University School Fee” read, “Revolutionary greetings from the apex body of National Association Of Nigerian Students’.

“It has been brought to our notice the Devilish, unjust and totally unacceptable decisions of the school management to increase astronomically the tuition fee payable by the newly admitted students in Ekiti State University with over 100,000.

According to NANS, “This decision of the school management is not only Ill-timed but also inconsiderate, unjustifiable, heartless and cruelty of its highest order considering the economic situation of the country.

“As a responsive and ideological Students’ body, we wish to state categorically that we won’t fold our arms and let these satanic increments stand.

The apex students’ body appealed to the governor and other stakeholders of the university to reverse the unfriendly decision within 72 hours otherwise the body of students would be forced to relocate and occupy the state.

NANS added, “On this note, the entire students’ Union body in Ekiti State, NANS JCC Ekiti Axis, NANS Zone D, NANS National Body and all well-meaning Nigerian students are hereby notified of our intention to relocate the Secretariat of the National Association of Nigerian Students to Ekiti State University after the expiration of the 72hr ultimatum.”
