FUTO students lament the increase in certificate fee from two hundred naira to twenty thousand naira

It is the dream of most persons to go to school. Academic excellence is also another desire which comes with being a student. However, school these days is becoming a feat. Apart from the increase in school fees, students are faced with low quality of education. Hostels are often not too conducive for the students that most of them prefer to stay outside the school's hostels.

So many gridlock in attaining academic qualifications, yet these students still graduate with good results. Bravo, you may say. These students go through a lot to graduate and when it is time to collect their certificates, another challenge comes to them.

This time, Federal University of Technology, Owerri have gone too far with their excessive charges. The students of FUTO are presently on Twitter lamenting the state of the school as they have been mandated to pay the sum of N20, 000 if they want to collect their certificates. This is against the initial amount of N200. The difference is way too much and inconsiderate considering the fact that Nigeria is still struggling with the Covid-19 pandemic.

So many persons have lost their jobs. Hence, the students who have been away from school for months due to the pandemic pleads that the school withdraw it's statement as the graduates cannot afford such huge amount.

Below are some of their comments
