Additionally, students protested against an abrupt increase in admission acceptance fees from N35,000 to N50,500, along with significant delays in result releases, which could extend up to two semesters.

Yusuf Amosun, Chairman of the House Committee on Education, Science, and Technology, has submitted reports on these disruptions, along with an e-petition to Speaker Olakunle Oluomo.
