The Take-It-Back Movement (TIBM), a human rights and pro-democracy group, has thrown its weight behind the students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), their parents and Nigerians in general against the astronomical increase of school fees by the university and other universities in the country.
Announcing its support in challenging the hurting school fees hike on Monday, TIB described the current trend of fees hike by many universities in the country as a “neoliberal agenda” of the President Bola Tinubu-led Nigerian government while millions of Nigerians are in abject poverty.
“Following the neoliberal agenda of the administration of @officialABAT targeted at pricing education out of the reach of the poor, authorities of @UnilagNigeria and other campuses have resolved to astronomical increments in fees.
“This is coming at the time more than 150 million Nigerians lives in Abject poverty complicated also by unprecedented hardship occasioned by increase in price of fuel, and electricity tariff.
“We stand with students of the University of Lagos, their poor parents, and millions of Nigerian students who will become victims of the renewed neoliberal siege on public education,” TIB stated.
