National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has passed a vote of no confidence on the Rector of DS Adegbenro ICT Polytechnic, Itori Ogun State, due to his plans to increase tuition fee and also to introduce other charges in the institution.
The Rector, Prof. Olufemi Fatada, according to report, has the intention to increase the tuition fee of the institution as being speculated.
NANS has called on the Executive Governor of the State, Dapo Abiodun to probe the Rector and send him on sabatical leave, saying “students and majority staffers aren’t confident of having him continued as the Rector of the school.”
Findings made available to schoolworld, revealed that NANS last week raised the alarm that the Management of the institution was making secret moves to allegedly increase tuition fees and to extort students through the introduction of other ‘illegal’ charges.
However, the institution’s management told newsmen that adding N5,000 to the tuition fees became necessary if the school was to maintain its existence.
The Polytechnic Registrar, Bayo Ogundimu, revealed that the school had been self-sustaining in a way, since its creation in 2006, saying that institution gets N5m monthly subvention from the state government and it has to pay salaries of staff.
