By our Reporters

Leaders of the Urhobo Progress Union (Youth-Wing) under the leadership of her National President Comr. Ovie Ebireri had today 15th March 2021 paid advocacy visit to the Delta State University Vice Chancellor, Prof. Andy Egwuyenga over the recent hike in the tuition fees.

You would recall that the Institution had increased her tuition fees recently, owing to the explanation of charges compatible with new services introduced for the benefit of the students. The charges include “DELSU mobile App, Wifi services, e-learning, Smart ID-Cards, cutting edge technologies and the COBES for Medical and allied courses.

However, the UPU Youth Leaders expressed dissatisfaction over the hike of the tuition fees noting that the hike is outrageous.

According to Comr. Ovie Ebireri, President of the Union, said there are students who could hardly pay the old fees and with the hike in the present fees, we fear if the Students can cope. He added that the drop out may be on the high side if students can no longer pay their fees.

In moving forward, the Union submitted their demands and was presented by Hon. Ochuko Okagbare , stating that:

(i) Reduction of the school fees to accommodate the interest of the students and that of the management

(ii) Others beneficiaries demands for the prosperity of Urhobo youths were also presented .

In response, the Vice Chancellor acknowledged the UPU Youth Leaders for opening the doors of dialogue with the University management. He assured the delegation that the fees will be reviewed to suite both the Students and the management when next the management of the institution meet.

Those in attendance were Comr. Ovie Ebireri, Hon. Ochuko Okagbare, Comr. Oghenevovwero Godfrey Ughwe, Comr. Orhotohwo Nelson Emume, Comr. Omiragua Stanley Ikpeni, Comr. Ughere Blessed and others.
