Laptop Fee In UNN Causes Hardship Among Students
This issue has obviously lingered. UNN belongs to
the Fed. Govt.; let them intervene.
Let me summarise: UNN VC, simply known as Dr.
Ozumba compelled all the newly admitted students
of UNN to pay 70,000 naira as Laptop Fee which
the school will supply. The fee has caused a lot of
hardship in the new intakes as it escalated the
school fees to 170,000 naira.
Acceptance fee: 25,000
School fees: 60 – 65,000
Laptop fee: 70,000
Accommodation: 10,000(boys) 11,000(girls)
Total: 165,000 – 171,000
The students have expressed their discomfort
with this to no avail. They are of the view that
some have laptops already, some say that they
can get a nice Laptop with just 40,000. Yet the
case the case still remains “No laptop fee, no
clearance in UNN”
The SUG on their own have not done a thing
concrete to reverse this. That’s the summary of
the status quo in UNN now.
