Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has urged the National Universities Commission to suspend the implementation of an increase in the tuition fees of universities.

In a motion by Aliyu Sani Madaki, who noted that the universities that hiked their fees included Bayero University, Kano; the University of Nigeria, Nsukka; the University of Uyo; University of Maiduguri; Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike; and Federal University, Dutse, among others stated that the hike might aggravate the already volatile situation in the country as students were already making threats which could lead to an uprising against the Federal Government, with grievous consequences for the country as a whole.

The House also asked the Federal Government to reverse the recent hike of school fees in Unity secondary schools.
