A final year student of Imo State University Owerri bared his mind on the much talked about free education scheme of the Imo State Government by sharing figures from the payments he recently made in school. When asked if he knew anyone that paid the amount, he replied emphatically, “I just did”, “Am a first hand witness” he added.
School fees (indigenous) = 20,000
Statement of result = 1,000
Convocation fee = 19,000
Verification fee = 1,000
Clearance fee = 1,000
WAEC verification = 1,000
SUG fee = 1,000
ID card = 1,000
Late payment = 1,000
Total = 46,500.
This is despite the compulsory parting sums students are coerced to pay in almost all the offices.
Now tell me: WHO SAID ROCHAS IS RUNNING FREE EDUCATION PROGRAM IN IMSU?
Point of correction, he could be forgiven had he said REDUCED TUITION.
