NANS Demands Reduction In MAPOLY's Acceptance, Medical Fees


ABEOKUTA - The leadership of National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in Ogun state has called on the state government to reduce acceptance fees and medical fees paid by students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta.

The National Chairman in the state, Comrade Damilola Simeon Kehinde while addressing journalists on the school campus on Tuesday after protesting against what he described as administrative recklessness by the Rector of the Polytechnic, Dr. Adeoye Odedeji called on the management to revert to 60/40 ratio payment of school fees.

Simeon noted that the outright 100 percent payment would deny many admission seekers access to quality education.

The students' body explained despite many entreaties sent to the Polytechnic's management, the Acting Rector always threatened the students with DSS. 

NANS, therefore, gave the state government 48hours to attend tot their demands or pocket academic activities on the campus.

"We demand the immediate establishment of Governing Council and appointment of Substantive Rector in MAPOLY.

"MAPAITES want a substantive Rector,and A Governing Council. Total fee of final year clearance has always been 11K but now it's 55K. We demand that this be reversed.

"The mode of payment of school fees use to be ratio 60/40 which can be paid twice in two semesters, but the management had resorted to 100percent one-time payment. We demand that this be reviewed at once.

"Maximum security on and off-campus. Eradication of extortion from the police force within the school environment is rampant, we have complained to the Management but all had turned on deaf ears. 

"We demand immediate reduction of acceptance fee and medical fee. We demand the addition of Marcopolo buses for students welfarism.

"We say no to the unreasonable extortion by the transport Union on Our Campus and demand that the price is returned to the normal 50naira per trip that was on the ground.

"That The school management should reverse their decision of killing the social life and activities on Our Campus. We say no to the management ban of Students bringing cars into the campus during and beyond exam periods."
