I can’t think of any other words but wickedness to describe the 95% increment in scholl fees of a state owned institution that is supposed to be affordable to the poor masses who are a majority in the nation.

 

A lot of the parents of students in that institution sacrifice to the extent of clearing up their bank accounts even going to the extent of taking loans to make sure their children get at least the National Diploma Certificate which is the least offered by the institution on graduation.

 

A good school management is supposed to put these things into considerations before holding a board meeting to increase school fees, not to talk of doing it by 95%. This is totally wrong and unfair.

 

The major problem we face in Nigeria has been the selfishness of our leaders overtime and it has come to play here again in the management of Delta State Polytechnic Ogwashiuku.

 

To think that the new Rector of the institution Professor Emmanuel Achuena is yet to complete a session as the Rector of the institution before this 95% increment in school fees, is very alarming as he was appointed Rector of the institution by the governor of Delta State Dr Ifeanyi Okowa sometimes in July 2021.

 

Word on the streets says the increment was made because Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro, one of the 3 Delta State owned polytechnics created by the then James Ibori led government of Delta State, has been converted to Delta State University of Science and Technology by the Okowa led administration, and Delta State Polytechnic Ogwashiuku is the only Polytechnic of the remaining 2 that has ND and HND in majority of the courses offered by the then Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro.

 

Reports on ground say students are already reacting to the 95% increment in school fees by taking to several social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Whatsapp groups with which they get information from the institution, to express their dissatisfaction with the increment. A peaceful protest by students, around the school premisses is expected to follow anytime soon.

 

Delta State Polytechnic Ogwashiuku Increase School Fees By 95%…

Its important to note that on the 24th of March 2021, students of the institution came out enmasse to support ND2 and HND 2 final year students in a peaceful protest against a 7,000 Naira increment in school their fees as a result of a compulsory Microsoft Certification program that was included in their academic calender.

 

The protest saw the students preventing the then Rector of the of the institution Professor Mrs Stella Chinye Chiemeke, acess to the school premisses. It later led to the removal of the compulsory 7,000 Naira Microsoft Certification Program fee.

 

This is a means to call on the management of Delta State Polytechnic Ogwashiuku to reconsider their decision to increase school fees by 95% and also plead on behalf of students of the institution to the governor of Delta State Dr Ifeanyi Okowa to look into this issue as his government has been striving very hard to promote education and development of mental capacity in the state, by the creation of more educational institution that includes the above mentioned Delta State University of Technology Ozoro, University of Delta State Agbor, and several technical colleges around the state.
