Some students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Ondo State have refused to register for the new semester and may choose to drop out, due to a drastic hike in the tuition fees of the school.
The state government has increased their tuition fee from N35k to N180k.
According to reports, following the tuition hike, some students have allegedly shunned the ongoing registration, which is billed to end on Saturday, May 26, 2018.
One of the students of the University, Richard Olaosebikan, who spoke with newsmen, said he was yet to pay the new school fees, as he is still struggling to meet up.
Recall that on Thursday, April 5, 2018, the university authorities announced the increment in a statement signed by the Chairman of the Governing Council, Dr Tunji Abayomi.
In the statement, the management said it has “approved payment per semester for students who cannot afford to pay the full school fees at once.”
This prompted the students to stage a protest, threatening to make Ondo State ungovernable for governor Rotimi Akeredolu if he does not reduce their school fees.
