NANS rejects Plateau State University’s imposition of N7,000 restitution fee on students


The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has rejected Plateau State University, Bokkos imposition of N7,000 restitution fee on students as unjustified and insensitive.

The President of NANS, Comrade Pedro Obi, said in a statement on Tuesday in Enugu, that the recent crisis at Plateau State University resulting in the tragic loss of one of the students had left us deeply saddened.

Obi said that in the light of this unfortunate event, the imposition of a N7,000 restitution fee by the “institution is not only insensitive but also unjustifiable.”

According to him, NANS vehemently rejects this fee and demands it is immediate withdrawal.

“It is unacceptable to burden students financially in the aftermath of such a tragic incident.

“Let it also be on record that even before the Examination, we had earlier received several distress calls from the students who were unable to pay their school fees, bringing this restitution fee again is nothing short of extortion, unacceptable and we reject same in it’s entirety.

“We stand in solidarity with the affected students and their families during this difficult time,” he said.

The NAN boss called on all students of the university to refrain from making any payment until further notice.

He noted that “NANS is actively engaging with the university management and relevant authorities to address this issue and ensure that justice is served.”

“As the apex body representing Nigerian students, NANS remains committed to advocating for the rights and welfare of students across the nation.

“We will continue to stand up against any form of injustice and oppression within our educational institutions,” he said.
