It was reported this morning that the students of the ambrose alli universty were gathered in their numbers at the school gate in regards of the increase in school fees which was last year increased from the sum of 37,000 naira to 134,000 for returning students of 200L while N120,000 for fresh students as tution fees.
Protest have being ongoing for some weeks the first which took place in Benin at the palace of the new Crowned King/Oba of Benin.
The school management has refused to accept that any fees was really increased that the fees still remains at what it used to be as said on some radio stations.
But reality on ground is that it a different story entirely in the school, because bulletins where released asking students to pay the new mouth watering fee.

They also had to pay an acceptance fee of 63,000 and an accomodation fee of about 17,000 naira.
summng to a total of about 200,000 naira.
This Lasted for the whole of last year as many new students who couldn't afford the fees had to forfeit their admission. very painful.
This year as the school authority announced that the increment will extend to the 200 level students until they graduate. the students came out in mass to speak and we ray that their voice be heard by the government.
