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.
