Breaking! Delta poly students protest N5,000 covid-19 levy

Oga oo, protests everywhere in the country. People are getting tired!

Students of the Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro are protesting against the N5,000 Covid-19 fee imposed by the management.

The protest, which started about 7am, saw several students at the institution’s gate and blocking the main entrance of the school.

The polytechnic had imposed a N5,000 Covid-19 levy on all students returning for the 2019/2020 academic session.

The school, in a circular last week, directed students to pay the levy so that authorities will be able to prepare for the health and safety as students return to school.

Calling on the Delta State Government to wade into the matter and prevail on the management to withdraw the levy, the students described it as unlawful and a means of extorting them.
