Students’ Protest: UNIBEN removes N20,000 late registration fee

The Senate of Benin University has agreed that the late registration fee of N20,000 will be removed, leading to a mass protest of the institution’s students for two days.

In a statement issued on Thursday evening in Benin, Ademola Bobola, the University Registrar, announced its removal.

After a protest against the tax, the school was shut down on Wednesday.

Mr Bobola noted that at a virtual meeting, the Senate ratified Lilian Salami’s earlier verbal statement.

On Wednesday, Ms. Salami reportedly withdrew the charge verbally when she was stormed and forced by the protesting students to walk long distances toward the school’s door.

At the second meeting within 24 hours, the Registrar explained that the Senate also agreed to reimburse the money already paid by defaulting students via the methods of preparing the institution’s bursary department.

“Consequently, lectures are to resume on Monday, Sept. 20, to enable students who obeyed the directive on school closure and travelled to return,” said the statement. “The university’s decision-making body also agreed that a new timeline be set for the payment of the school charges for the 2020/2021 academic session. It also directed that the re-activation of charges for postgraduate programmes be sent to the board of postgraduate school for review.”

The institution’s senate also reiterated that penalty for late payment of school charges, which has been in existence for years, should not be set aside.

It, however, called for its modification.

According to the statement, the senate passed a vote of confidence in the university’s management and praised the vice-chancellor for her wisdom, courage, and magnanimity.
