Students of the Bayelsa State-owned Niger Delta University (NDU) have staged a protest over plans by the school management to introduce school uniforms to be paid for by students.

The Public Relations Officer of NDU, Idoni Indezi, told journalists that the issue of indecent dressing by female students prompted the introduction of uniforms on students.

Indezi said the school management has not fixed fees for uniforms and that discussions are still ongoing at departmental and faculty levels.

NewsWireNGR gathered that the students staged a peaceful protest inside the campus of the institution at Wilberforce Island, Amassoma in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday calling on the state government to pressure the management to rescind on its decision on the students.

Some of the students meanwhile, alleged that engineering students were mandated to pay as much as N30,000 each for their uniforms while students of other faculties would pay N20,000 each.
