#OAUSaysNo to Outrageous Fee Increments!


I was going to write a piece about the recent fee increments at my alma mater, Obafemi Awolowo University, when I discovered this piece by Suraj Oyewole.

"Ife is a school for the brilliant poor.  If some universities have turned education into a commercial venture, Ife must not be tempted to join the train."

He most accurately captures my thoughts in the sentence above, and I thought to share a link to his piece...

PS: To strike the right balance, I must mention that the Students Union 'zero-increment' policy is unrealistic under the present circumstances. Both parties must return to the Negotiation table, and the Senate must be willing to shift stance to fees of a more affordable nature.
