National Association of Polytechnic students (NAPS) has warned against attempts by some schools to increase their tuition fee and declared that any such move would be totally rejected by the student populace.
This was just as the students also admonished Kwara state government and the management of Kwara Polytechnic to reverse its recent increment in tuition fees.
This was contained in NAPS communiqué it issued at the end of the 2017 International Students Day which held at Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, Edo state.
The day is set aside in honour of students who lost their lives in the November 17, 1939, attack by Nazi German army in the University of Czechoslovakia.
In the communiqué endorsed by Comrade Eneji Mohammed Abdulhameed and three others, the students reassured of their commitment to “sustain the good fight against the B.Sc, HND dichotomy until the barrier is flushed out of the nation’s educational system.”
While lauding what it described as the “ongoing improvement of existing facilities in Auchi Poly,” the students urged the federal government to confirm Dr. Momodu Sanusi Jimah as the substantive rector of the school.
