University Of Calabar A Threat To Nigerian Students

31

UNICAL A THREAT TO NIGERIANS STUDENTS I started my journey in 2017/18 to became a student of One of the popular federal Nigeria university know as the university of Calabar, Calabar. It was an excited moment when I discovered that I was offered an admission to study in the noble university of my dream as per my status. Things where going well during the reign of the then VC professor Zana not until the emergence of the almighty first female VC in the person of professor Florence Obi Banku who is the current VC unical. Professor Florence Obi Banku promised the students of the great university of how she's going to get rid of corrupt practices, fight for the right of the students and make the campus student friendly and enjoyable; barely few months in the office, she increase the fee from what has been to what most students can't afford to pay. The Obi reign has the VC has made life frustrating and miserable to alot of students. A lot of students are dropping out because of the alarming increment in fee and many other bills. Education was to be free only depending on what the called"charges''. The students union government that was supposed to be a union has taken a new shape as a political platform than being a union. The students can no more longer make their choice of a leader but rather selection are being made by the management and appointment is given to whoever has been chosen by them. The union that was supposed to be the voice of the students is now a threat to the students community. The students voice's can no more longer be heard, no more protest when things are not going well or not favouring the the students, the union dances to the management tune as per what they benefits. Just concluded election in the institution shows the level of corruption and how manipulating the system has become. The students can't fight for their rights because their leaders have given consent on behalf of them. Should the students gathered to demonstrate a peaceful protest, boom the environment will be filled with both military and paramilitary forces to stop the demonstration. What is the function of the students union government in every university? Things are getting worse every passing day. Now late payment of fees attract extra charge of 5k.fee portal are being close without consideration, uploading of result online without proper guidelines, the sites are not properly coded has student keep complaining and facing different challenges in one way or the other. Where is the education for every child right? We're stuck in this without a voice to speak for us, we chose unical because many of us are from average background, we chose unical because it was affordable for all. Some of The newly admitted students have let go of their admission because their expectations has been cut short. Many new and both returning students have not been able to pay their fees because of hike in school charges. The students are dying in silence, soon education will no more longer be for every Nigerian child, soon people will be more interested in vocational training than western education. I now call on All Nigerian students in the university of Calabar, Calabar to please say no to hike in school charges, say no to selection in student union government (SUG),say no to closing of school fee portal, etc.
