The President of NUGS, Isaac Jay Hyde speaking in an interview with Happy 98.9 FM’s Samuel Eshun, host of the Happy Morning Show said, “I found the reduction of fees for the 2020/21 academic year timely.”

The student leader expressed his surprise at the NDC capturing the aforementioned saying, “We had already sent a letter to the presidency to reduce fees by fifty per cent (50%) prior to the launch of the NDC manifesto and were waiting for a response from the presidency. .”

Isaac Jay Hyde commended the NDC for deciding to absorb a fraction of the fees for the 2020/21 academic year as they (students) were also feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is a good thing captured by the NDC. We want to also enjoy reliefs just as the government gave to other institutions when the COVID-19 pandemic hit us hard,” he noted.

When asked if there was any consultation between NUGS and the NDC prior to their manifesto launch, Isaac responded in the negative.
