In his quest to fulfill his five point agenda and the promises he made to students at an event held by Etisalat at the Akanu Ibiam Stadium of University of Nigeria, Nsukka, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Benjamine Chukwuma Ozumba, has reduced tuition fees by 50 percent.
It could be recalled that the professor made this promise at a show organized by a telecommunication network, Etisalat, on the 8th of August 2014, which he was invited to make the raffle draw for the grand prize of a car.
Just before he made the draw, Prof. Ozumba, who is a professor of Obstetricis and Gynaecology said: “I will join Etisalat to package something for the youths on the forth-coming International Youth Day because they are dear to my heart. The Student Union Government, SUG, will receive three buses, and I will cut the tuition fees by 50 percent.”
In the recent publication of the tuition fees of the institution for the 2014/2015 academic session, the V.C. ensured that his words came to reality as the 50% reduction was reflected.
Reacting to the development, a student, Wilfred F. Aziegbe. Who spoke to Vanguard Learning described the act as compassionate, said: “Prof. Ozumba is a compassionate man. He understands the plight of students and in today’s harsh economy, just a few would take such steps.”
“Good things should be commended. Ozumba’s steps to see tuition fees reduced, politics or humane, is commendable.” Said Onyekere
Ifeanyi, a student of Faculty of Arts, futher projecting his goodness expressed: “He is doing a good job, let’s hope he finishes well.”
However, Victor G. Ugwuoke thinks differently about the development, according to him: “He enjoys a good reputation but he is doing it for political reasons.”
