The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Borno State Chapter, on Thursday, directed students of the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) not to proceed with the newly hiked registration fees/charges, stating that measures are being taken to ensure a reversal.
NANS admonish the students to await Strategic Action Plan before taking further action with regard to payment of registration fees and charges.
In a press statement signed by Mohammed Babagana Mustapha, Publicity Secretary of NANS, Borno State Chapter stated that “90% of independent students,” can not afford the new fees hike.
UNIMAID authorities had on Tuesday 10th January informed its students that they can pay the new fees/charges in two instalments; 60 % for the first semester and 40% for the second.
The statement further stated that this stand was vehemently rejected by NANS as they described the act of the UNIMAID Governing Council as” inhuman considering the economic misfortunes currently in place.”
