On Tuesday, students of the University of Jos in Plateau State took to the streets to voice their discontent over a recent increase in school fees and other associated costs imposed by the institution. Organized by the Student Union Government leaders, the protesters demanded an immediate reversal of the fee hike and other related charges.
With placards bearing powerful messages like “If your children can afford the money, we can’t” and “We don’t want to drop out of school,” the students made it clear that the fee increments were untenable. They argued that Nigerians were already grappling with significant economic hardships, and further fee increases would only exacerbate the burdens faced by students and their families.
This developing situation highlights the growing concerns of students and their determination to safeguard their access to education amidst economic challenges. More details on this protest will be provided as they emerge.
