FUTO Students Protest Over Exorbitant School Fees (Pictures) by anthonypeters(m): 11:24am On Feb 17
Students of the Federal University Of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) have taken to the streets to protest over exorbitant school fees fees levied on them by the school management. As we update you, the protest is still on going.

Let’s present you the school fees schedule for 2015/2016 academic session and that of 2016/2017 academic session.
FUTO School fees schedule for 2015/2016 Academic Session:

FUTO Year one (100L) School fees
Geology = (School fees) N50,800 + N40,000 (Acceptance Fees)
Total= N90,800
Other Departments = (School fees) N48,300+ N40,000 (Acceptance fees)
Total= N88,300

FUTO Year two & three (200l-300l) School fees
Geology = #35,800
Other Departments = #33,300

FUTO Year IV & V(400l-500l) School fees
Geology = #30,800
Other Departments = #28,300

FUTO School fees schedule for 2016/2017 Academic Session:
We got information that Fresh (100 Level) Students still pay an additional acceptance fee of NGN 42,500 making a total of NGN 124,000.

Students still have to pay huge amounts for accommodation and course registration. A student claimed that fresh students pay more than NGN 20,000 for various course registration apart from school fees and acceptance fees.

There was heavy police presence on campus to ensure that the students do not vandalize the school property or create any havoc during the protest.
The students decided they will go on a protest when the school management gave them an ultimatum to pay up today or pay a fine of additional NGN 10,000.

Enjoy pictures from the Live Protest, while we keep you updated.

na wa oh,

things are hard yet these schools don'tgive a Bleep.

But in my opinion, the only fees on the high is those of year 1.

40k acceptance fee is robbery.

These students are not ready to learn. Imagine the small amount of money they are protesting over? Do they think university education is free everywhere like their Roach-ass made it? They can sit at home and we will see whose ox is gored. Rubbish!!!

i'm a futoite, but the way this students are going about this thing is very wrong.



imagine, most of them took the opportunity to break school properties and even steal from lecturers office..dats wrng and babaric.

i believe the school authorities would react to this harshly.

Returning students pay less than $100? What are they now protesting for?

Is it that the students are unable to hustle out $100 in 12 months?

No wonder unemployment is everywhere with people unable to hustle.

Even secondary school students charge more than $100 per term.

Even students that graduated last year are forced to pay N5,000 for "school fee completion" as part of final clearance.

Gradual implementation, in phases, is the best route to follow by the Management in such a case as this.
Well, that's if it's the last and only option left.
