The students Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), Lagos, on Thursday, embarked on a protest against the decision of the Management over the decision to increase tuition fees.

“We had a preliminary meeting with the school management. The six principal officers of the college were not available. We only had the Deputy Rector (Administration) in attendance. We were, however, assured that the school management will be better represented tomorrow by 3pm. As it is, we are suspending all our activities till the meeting holds,” Akinola said.
A student said the students are not ready to accept an increment from N19,200 to N23,000.
