The students of University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) Monday came out in their large number and protested against the school fees policy just introduced by the authorities of the institution.
UNIPORT management has directed ‘no fee; no examination’ rule, but the protesting undergraduates declined, arguing that the policy was callous and cruel.
The current semester our Correspondent gathered, is scheduled to commence today – Monday.
The students who started the protest before dawn, blocked the popular East-West Road, as well as stopped both vehicular and human movement in and out of Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
The aggrieved students vowed that the protest would continue until they were addressed on the matter by the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Sunday Lale.
It would be recalled students of University of Lagos (UNILAG) last Friday protested against poor living condition in the campus, due to poor power and water supply in their hostels. The violent revolt led to indefinite closure of the school.
