The Federal Government has come under severe criticism over the increment of tuition fees at the unity schools.
Our correspondent sought the view of Nigerians on this and the verdict is a knock for what they say is an attempt to commercialise education.
To them, increasing the fees from N20, 000 to N75, 000 is not in tune with the present economic situation.
The National Parents and Teachers Association of the Federal Government Colleges protested the increment in a communique issued on Monday.
According to the communique, signed by the association's National President, Dr. Gabriel Nnaji, the parents condemned increment from N20,000 to N75,000.
The communiqué partly read, “The increase of school fees from about N20,000 to about N75,000 in unity colleges is most untimely and insensitive. An average Nigerian worker whose minimum wage is N18,000 and who has one or two children in the unity colleges will be unable to keep his or her child or children in the unity colleges.
