Yet Another One! BSU Students Protest Hike In Sch Fees, Block Major Road

Yet another one again. As the UNIPORT protest was going on, which sent two students to their early graves, Benue State University students were also protesting almost the same cause- hike in their school fees.

For example the acceptance fees for freshers was increased from N5000 to N25000 accoridng to the students.

The ever busy Makurdi-Gboko federal highway was blocked for atleast four hours leaving travellers stranded on the high way.

Placards such as  “Reverse this unpopular decision”, “the new fee is anti people”, “our parents cannot afford this” and “we did not bargain for this,” were all displayed freely by the students.

Indeed, is it that the economy of the country has now affected tertiary institutions? If yes, are the students to be blamed? Please don’t put unnecessary pressure on them.
