The Students’ Union Government of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree has condemn the proposed school fee hike by the State Government of Osun.

This condemnation and opposition was contained in a statement released by the President of the union, Comrade Adegbaye Taiwo Richard and made available to Insight Group.

The students’ body describes the move as “satanic, devilish, demonic, ignoble, obnoxious and outrageous” saying that “education is a right and not privilege”.

He said “Information reaching us from government officials is that a memo has been circulated to all state-owned tertiary institutions management ( Ilesa, Iree, Esa-Oke and Ila-Orangun) that increment of tuition fee from 25,000 to 56,000 in Osun state Polytechnic, Iree and Osun state College of Technology, Esa-Oke while Colleges of Education in Ila and Ilesha has been increased from 25,000 to 45,000.

Comrade Richard advised the government to disembark the move or face the full wrath of the students’ bodies across the country “We will fight to resist all policies, programmes and actions using the instrumentalities of the law and all other lawful means to achieve basic welfare for the generality of the students and immediate reversal of all form of increment.  We will employ constructive criticism, dialogue, congressional  resolutions and constitutional rights as a citizen of this country to press home our fundamental right and beliefs and we  will also work closely with all interests that seek the good of Nigeria Students.
