WHEN WILL BSU AND OTHERS STOP EXPLOITING OUR CHILDREN IN THE NAME OF DUES AND REVENUE GENERATION. By Ahile Kashami Ahile.

I asked this last year and am still asking today. What sense and empathy is there in making someone who BSU did not offer admission to pay N400 after paying N2500 for screening, so they can go and check a list that does not have their name on it?



Must we lose our sense of empathy because we want to generate revenue? Must we also exploit our own people because others are doing it?

Must we continue to take education out of the reach of our own people through unnecessary financial hurdles, In the form of numerous dues?

I believe the university was created to educate our people first. I believe it is the duty of government to make life easy and education free where possible for our people.So why do we have this situation?

This lack of empathy for poor applicants is exploitation. What happened to simply putting up the list of successful students on line free of charge and then collecting the ridiculous amounts that are paid for acceptance letters and the rest from only those who are successful.

Why do our parents sit in university councils and together with some banks make this type of hurtful policies and exploit our own people and then wonder why we have so many issues as a people.

Those whom are supposed to rise against this kind of actions do nothing but watch on as our own people are being raped.
Our government keeps quiet, the BSHOA keeps quiet.Our elders keep quiet, our people who are used to being exploited keep quiet and go through hell to pay these monies.

It makes no single sense to collect  money no matter how small from a poor applicant who the school did not offer admission so he or she can go and check the list that does not have his name on it and then begin to cry.

This actually qualifies as wickedness and it has been going on in BSU for some time and it is sad because these decisions were probably made by Christians too.

This situation is not only present in BSU there are reports of this type of exploitation in all our higher institutions and even primary and secondary schools

There are reports that the headmaster of saint Theresa's primary school is collecting  N900 per child for examination fee. Why are we exploiting our parents. Most parents cannot the said examination fee after paying school fees.

But what is examination fee in a government primary school where education is supposed to be free.What exactly is examination fee used for? When parents have already paid school fees?.

There is no justification whatsoever to ask primary school students to pay N900 each for examination fee after they have paid school fees. Is examination no longer part of school?

When we elected a change government these are the things we expected to seize to exist ASAP. We expected an overhaul of our systems and a new way of doing things to take effect, but these acts that have kept us stagnant and that we got tired of, are still going on all over the place.

Our people who went all out to vote for change are being exploited in the most evil and corrupt schemes ever by little men and women who have nothing but greed and destruction to offer our society.

And still our people watch and say nothing, our rep members watch and say nothing our elected officials watch and say nothing our religious leaders watch and say nothing, our ever wise elders watch and say nothing.

Yet somehow we hope we will make progress.

HOW?

If only we would be innovative, there are so many way we can generate revenue without exploitation.We must not let the drive for money steal our humanity from us, and make us forget the obligation of leadership to its people.

Those who are in authority and hold the powers to effect this changes must as a matter of urgency.

STOP MAKING PEOPLE PAY MONEY TO CHECK ADMISSION LIST.

STOP ALL UNNECESSARY DUES IN OUR HIGHER INSTITUTIONS THAT MAKE EDUCATION TOO EXPENSIVE FOR OUR PEOPLE.

STOP ALL FRAUDULENT FEES AND DUES IN OUR MINISTRIES AND AGENCIES AND SCHOOLS.

Thank you.
