Some students of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State, have protested against the outrageous increment in school fees being proposed by the school management.
Many of the students lamented that, should the increment be implemented, many of them were likely to drop out of school.
One of the students, who spoke with Sahara Reporters, said the nationwide COVID-19 lockdown in 2020 affected the students such that many could not pay the current fees of N28,450.
He added that the fees had now been increased to N40,000, further dashing the hopes of many students to continue their studies.

As millions of children are going hungry in the North East of Nigeria due to attacks devastating lives through malnutrition hunger, abuse and trauma, Save the Children said it remains committed to working with the authorities in the northeast of Nigeria to deliver urgent, life-saving humanitarian assistance for children and their families who are in dire need.
Save the Children also said it was deeply concerned to find that an estimated 2.3 million children and youth, including some 700,000 children under five, were going hungry in the Northeast of Nigeria.
A recent UN report found that 4.4 million people in the area are on the brink of acute hunger as attacks by militants are forcing farmers from their lands.
