“The Union haven explored all other means of resolving the lingering, incessant and indiscriminate charges across the institution and the double taxation on all of us, it’s now glaring that, while as students sees the staff as role models for the purpose of mentorship into proper character and academic excellence, it is rather much more worrisome that those we see as mentors now sees us as a market for exploitation”. The release said in part.
