The Student’s Union Government SUG of Institute of Management and Technology IMT Enugu has call for calm over the inconsiderable hiking of school fees by governing council of IMT Enugu.
Matters Arising earlier reported a remours claiming that the management of IMT Enugu increased the schools for freshers from initial N40,000 Naira to N80,000 Naira
The student union on a statement released on Wednesday reads;
Our attention has been drawn on a purported attempt by the students and alumni of our Institute to carry out a protest regarding the 100% increments on the school fees of the freshers (ND 1 and HND 1).
Firstly, we appreciate you all for channeling your grievances, through and agitation to the union Representative (SUG). It shows that indeed, we are representing with your mandate.
Secondly, we wish to inform the general public that the increment has been made before we assumed office. It was in the course of our engagement, that we were notified of a slight change in the increment schedule.
It is also worthy to note that the portal for ND 1 and HND 1 payment schedule is yet to be open as New student are yet to be admitted and as such, cannot ascertain areas affected by this increment and the exact amount to be paid.
Upon our resumption, and knowing fully well that we were sent to represent the interest of all IMT students, we have engaged the appropriate authorities to reconsider the decision earlier made by the governing council, management and our predecessor.
We implore all our students to remain calm and of good conduct as positive result will be announced soon.
What’s your take?
