UNIBEN STUDENTS PROTEST AGAINST HIKE IN SCHOOL FEES- 15th Sep 2021, 08:45am
There is an enormous dissent presently progressing at the Maingate of University of Benin, Benin City, Edo State, prompting an interruption of business exercises nearby.
It was accumulated that the dissent is because of the supposed expansion in charges for late installment by the University's Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Lilian Salami. As indicated by a source, "Our VC has added N20k to expenses for late installment soon after 3 weeks of resumption and inability to pay with the augmentation by Friday, will prompt relinquishing confirmation.
The underlying school expense was N70k previously however she added an amount of N20k for the 100-level section understudies. A great deal of understudies are yet to pay. Indeed, even the understudies' association body moved toward her for an exchange yet the VC would not notice prompting the dissent we have today.
The whole Benin-Lagos government street is on halt right now because of the dissent. We encourage the important specialists to swim into the matter."
