UNN Students Call On Minister To Look Into Compulsory Laptop Levy

Students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN, Monday urged the minister of education, Malam Adamu Adamu to intervene in the compulsory laptop fee slammed on them by the University authority.


New students of the University, in separate interviews, described the N75,000 compulsory laptop levy as arbitrary.

It was gathered that the University administration had recently introduced a mandatory policy, wherein all the students are being forced to own a laptop.

One of the new students described the policy as inhuman, noting that “it is so sad that they are making education so difficult for the poor.

“With this policy, we would now paying close to N200,000 in a federal university per session. This is wickedness.

“As I speak to you, I’m helpless because my parents don’t have that kind of money. It is wrong for anyone to make computer ownership compulsory. It should be a matter of choice. The management should not use us to make money”.

Also speaking, another student called on the education minister to call the Vice Chancellor to order.

“We are begging the Minister to urgently intervene because they are turning this University to a market place.

“If the Vice Chancellor is interested in doing laptop business, he should find a market for it, not placing such burden on poor students.

“Some of our parents are leaving on N18,000 minimum wage; now they want them to pay N200,000 as school fees for one session. This is wickedness of the highest order. This computer should be by choice”, he stated.
