Students Drag UNIPORT VC To Court


Students of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) have dragged their Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ndowa Lale, to a Federal High Court, in Port Harcourt, over their suspension as a result of non-payment of tuition fees.

The students (names withheld), through their counsel, Ameghua Lazina, explained to newsmen that the clients could not be suspended or demoted as result of nonpayment of tuition fees, which ought to have been paid within a specified time

Ameghua said the students had chosen to express their fundamental rights by challenging the draconian policy of the institution.

The counsel described the students’ suspension as a ‘draconian policy, which is inconsistent with laws, regulations, acts and status of the university.

Ameghua said: Ordinarily, the matter today, is for mention, but the defendant did not appear today, for the matter.
