The National Association of Nigerian Students, Ekiti state chapter has forewarned the management of Bamidele Olumilua University of Education Science and Technology Ikere Ekiti (BOUESTI) on further reduction of both school and acceptance fees.

The association disclosed this to our correspondent through a press release by the state chairman, Comrade Olarewaju Olamide Felix, and signed by secretary of the association, Comrade Aderibigbe Sikiru Adekunle.

The association who have earlier demanded for the decrease in BOUESTI fees said the first reduction was laudable but unacceptable by students’ populace. Comr. Felix stressed that if the management failedĀ  to meet up with students’ demands within stipulated time given, it may lead to action from entire Ekiti Students.

BOUESTI PROPOSED SCHOOL FEES: FURTHER REDUCTION OR FACE THE WRATH OF EKITI STUDENTS

Albert Einstein once said that “Education is not learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” Productive thinking is only available when education is affordable. Students’ life are becoming hardened due to the fact that hardship is coming from where comfort is supposed to flow from.

Recall that the NANS JCC EKITI released an open letter to the Vice Chancellor of Bamidele Olumilua University of Education Science and Technology Ikere Ekiti on the 3rd of June, 2021 about the precarious and callous proposed school fees of the brand new university.

You will also recall that following our demand and agitation, the acceptance fees was reduced from #100,000 to #50,000 while the school fees for Non science courses, science courses and technology based course were reduced to #175,550, #200,550 and 210,550 respectively.

The leadership of NANS EKITI consider this laudable but not acceptable. However, till the date our ultimatum elapsed, we never heard anything from the management of the institution. It saddens that the audible voice of this association is counted as nothing worth attending to.

Nevertheless, we’re using this medium to bring to the remembrance of Prof. Olufemi Adeoluwa that our demands are still in tandem and we won’t hesitate to make use of the third C’s of Aluta in taking up our demands.

On this note the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS JCC EKITI) hereby urge all intending students of Bamidele Olumilua University of Education Science and Technology Ikere Ekiti who are presumed victim of this inhumane extortion to hold on and not make any payment as we are combatant ready to agitate the reduction of the school fees.

Hence, we give the management of Bamidele Olumilua University of Education Science and Technology Ikere Ekiti 72 hours to look into the further reduction of the school, failure to do this means we have to relocate the NANS JCC SECRETARIAT OF EKITI STATE TO BOUESTI SCHOOL GATE for a showdown with the school management.

Official press release to Mobilise the armless battalion of student populace follows on Thursday 1st July, 2021 if our demands are not met.
