Students of the University of Jos (UNIJOS), on Monday, November 24, 2014 protested the alleged systematic increment in school fees by shunning the second semester examinations, adding that they were already paying exorbitant fees for poor services.

Vanguard reports that the President of the Students’ Union Government (SUG), Abel Nok Du, said the students were unhappy over the increment, stressing that they had already written to the school authorities without success.

He said: “We are calling for the removal of N10,000 development levies from our school fees; we are also calling for the reduction of N25,000 acceptance fees for admission.Our properties have been destroyed because students accused us of compromise.”

On their part, the university authorities have denied any increase in the tuition fees, postponing the boycotted examination until Monday, December 1, 2014.”
