This was contained in a motion by Aliyu Sani Madaki, who noted that the universities that hiked their fees included Bayero University, Kano; the University of Nigeria, Nsukka; the University of Uyo; University of Maiduguri; Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike; and Federal University, Dutse, among others.


Lawmakers in the green chamber were concerned that the hike in fees by the universities was happening against the worsening poverty level in the country, inflation, high rate of unemployment, and the recent fuel price hike.


They feared that the increase could cause disruptions for a number of students who could not afford the fees which could increase the number of drop outs.


The lawmakers appealed to the Federal Government to reverse the recent hike of school fees in Unity secondary schools.
