• The Obafemi Awolowo University, Student Union Government (SUG) President, Mr Omotoyo Akande, has called on the President-elect, General Mohamadu Buhari (rtd) to reverse the school fees hikes in tertiary institutions in the country.

    Akande, who made the call in Osogbo, said the new administration should ensure proper funding of the education sector.

    “These new executive has the mission to establish a good relationship with the media, not to gain popularity but to publicize our position on national issues and issues affecting the students in the institution,” Akande said.

    He said the in-coming federal administration should embark on policies that would change the old policies on education from 1999 to date, saying “this is a litmus test for the new administration”.

    According to him, the university authorities have consistently been increasing school fees, thereby making life unbearable for students and parents.

    The student president said funding of education should be given priority over other sectors, describing it as the bedrock of development of the country.

    He called on the president-elect to address immediately the issue of graduate unemployment in the country and make use of abundant human and natural resources wasting away in the country for its economic growth. (NAN)
