CDHR Expresses Worries

CDHR Condemns Hike In Nigerian Law School’s Tuition Fee, Demands Immediate Reversal

 

CDHR Condemns 

 

OpenLife Nigeria reports that the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights, CDHR, has  strongly criticized the increase in tuition fees at the Nigerian Law School despite the ongoing economic difficulties faced by the nation.

 

The Rights group noted that the recent announcement by the institution’s director-general, Isah Chiroma, revealed that the fee for the upcoming 2023/2024 academic session has risen from N296,000 to N496,000.

This decision, according to the group,  is deemed oppressive and unnecessary, as it exacerbates the hardships experienced by Nigerians and restricts access to legal education for the less privileged.

 

The group  further expressed sadness to the effect that currently, Nigerians are already grappling with the repercussions of the removal of subsidies on petroleum products by the Federal Government, which has failed to provide adequate solutions to alleviate the impact,

 

In response, CDHRs statement jointly signed by Comrade Debo Adeniran, National President and Comrade Idris Afees Olayinka, National Publicity Secretary, CDHR  demands an immediate reversal of the fee hike and proposes a downward review of the tuition fees.

 

Should the law school refuse to revert to the previous fee structure, CDHR vows to mobilize mass action to challenge the decision.

 

The organization remains steadfast in its commitment to advocate for and safeguard the rights of the Nigerian people.
