"We don't ballot for hostel like full time students" — Unilag ICE Student Cries Out

An ICE (part time) sociology student of the University of Lagos has tendered complaints of not been able to ballot for hostels like full time students. 

The student who requested to be kept anonymous complained that they were told they are just like the full time students but are restricted from balloting. 

"We're told we just like the full time students, we have to squat and then we are're told that squatting is illegal in unilag.

We've heard stories of hostel mistresses barging into hostels and sending the hostel squatters out in the middle of the night. Please we'd also like to have the opportunity to ballot for hostels just like the full time students do", the student pleaded. 

Recall that the University of Lagos (UNILAG) reportedly raised fees for students running their degree programmes under its Institute for Continuing Education (ICE).

A student of mass communications undergoing the part-time programme told TheCable on Thursday that their fee was raised from ₦175,000 to ₦225,000 with no official announcement

When contacted on the matter, Adejoke Alaga, UNILAG’s media spokesperson, told TheCable that the ICE is a private programme excluded from federal government funding.

“The students should expect that ICE couldn’t possibly be exempted from the general upward review in our fees. What the university even did for the ICE was to review their obligatory fees,” she added.

“The increment is not drastic. There’s no need for protest. The university remains open to engagement from the students. What they should do is to engage management.”
