The students who spoke to Joy News say they will resist any attempt by University Management to pass on the cost to them. “We won’t pay and we will be bold to defend this just cause like we have done many times, we will resolve this without destroying any property,” one student said. But Prof. Godfred Bokpin debunked the allegations that the university wants to privatise the halls. Instead he said, the university is seriously considering increasing the fees in the next academic year. “There isn’t any firm decision to privatise those halls but that proposal has come up for consideration as the university is looking at various options available to enable it to draw down on these facilities. “Currently, the University does not have a balance sheet and I think increasing fees is available…there is the need to look at the fees students are paying because the university is heavily underfunded by government.”
