UI :Guardians summon for meeting over students protest.
The Provost of the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan has called parents of medical students of the institution for a meeting over the protests that greeted recent hikes in some fees by the school’s management.
The meeting will hold on April 11, 2018, at the ABH cafeteria.
The text message read that: “the provost college of medicine, U.I requests your kind presence at a Parent Teacher forum… ”
Medical students of the institution had embarked on a protest over the increase in fees they are being asked to pay for accommodation by the management of the institution.
The new regime of accommodation fees revealed that the students will pay between N14, 000 and N30, 000 per session to live in residential halls within the Unibadan main campus, and N40, 000 for residents of the Medial hall, Alexander Brown Hall, located within the premises of University Teaching Hospital (UCH).
Apart from the hike in accommodation fee, the school also introduced “Health Professional Training Levy” which would cost the students over N50, 000 each per session.
The University authority last Saturday issued a notice directing all medical students to vacate the halls of residence following the protest over the increase in fees.
