Government Proffers Solution To Student’s House Rent As NANS Demands Reduction Of Tuition Fee In Ogun State


The Special Assistant to Ogun State Governor on student’s matters, Comrade Adeyemi Azeez Amoo has said that his office has put a strategic plan in place to prevent any undesirable house rent increase by landlords as students prepare to return to their various schools ahead of resumption on the 21st of September 2020.

Azeez, who was represented Governor Dapo Abiodun, made it known in his statement yesterday during the Post Covid-19 sensitization programme in Abeokuta that his meetings with CDAs will ensure that students will only pay half of their rent.

“Student’s need to get in touch with their student union president because I’ve talked to them in detail and we’ve held a virtual meeting on this issue.

“I will visit some areas like Ijebu and Ijagun before resumption on the 21st and I’ve fixed a meeting with the community leaders. From there I will move to other areas.

“The students should be rest assured that we will be available to address all these issues and it will be a win-win situation, not that landlords will give total waiver for everything. We will work on having a 50-50, probably the landlord taking off 50%.” the event’s host said.

The main essence of the training and sensitization workshop on COVID-19 was to equip all the student leaders with the protocols and train them on how to commence a process of mobilizing, sensitizing and reorientating the students populace in all tertiary institutions across the state.

The workshop was graced by renowned motivational speaker and billionaire security mogul, Ubong King, who used his words to prepare the students mentally and psychologically as they might have been too complacent and relaxed after the six month hiatus in academic activities.

A risk management tool of the state government to curb the possible spread of the coronavirus in mass gatherings was also made available by the Senior Special Assistant on Health, Dr. Ololade Kehinde.

The students roared in joy when the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Ogun State Joint Campus Committee (JCC) demanded that the state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun should consider to reduce the tuition fee of each school in lieu of sharing money or food as relief materials.

“Instead of giving us a palliatives in terms of cash, rice, garri and beans we want him to covert it to a significant reduction in our tuition fee because that will go a long way and will also go round all students.” Comrade Tomiwa Bamgbose, the chairman of NANS Ogun JCC said in the event’s farewell message

Tomiwa ceased the opportunity to tell the Special Assistant, as the intermediary between the students and the governor, that it is necessary to equip all the thirteen Students Union president in the state with hummer buses.

“The leader of the students in the gateway state, saddled with the responsibility of looking after the interest of students will always have reasons to move from one place to another, if the 13 tertiary institution in ogun state is equipped with a brand new hummer buses, I believe that the office of the NANS chairman has been equipped.”

He also appealed with the state government to provide the enabling environment for schools to reopen in a safe condition as soon as possible.

“In relation to the theme of today’s program, one of the way to stop the widespread of coronavirus is to maintain a two meter social distancing but the infrastructural capability of all our institutions will make it difficult to achieve.

“It is on the record of Nigerian students that for the past 8 years during the former administration, no single building was erected on our campus courtesy of the state government.

“We are bringing this to Dapo Abiodun as a person who campaigned for it during his electioneering process, it is time for him to fulfil his promises.

“We are not asking for money neither are we asking for gold nor silver but facilities and conditions that we make learning bearable and suitable for the students.” he concluded.
