OAU Fee Hike: Students Protests, Barricade Lagos-Ibadan Express Way

Great Ife students as they are fondly called was left with no other option than to take their struggle out of the walls of Obafemi Awolowo University Campus.

This is coming after series of failed consultations of stakeholders and negotiations with the school management.

Students mobilized as early as 7am today and moved in their thousands to the OUI roundabout where the four connecting roads were barricaded. The men of the Nigerian Police Force are there maintaining order BUT no single vehicle was allowed through.

It will be recalled that the Prof. Bamitale Omole led University Council last 2 weeks ratified a decision to astronomically hike the school fees of Great Ife Students. With that, students fees will increase from N17,500 to N91,000 without adding yet the N20,000 acceptance fees and another hiked accomodation fee.
