ABSU is asking students to pay “Pandemic Prevention Fee” not to test students for COVID19
According to the school, you have to prevent the receipt before you enter the school.
Not present your COVID19 negative result but a receipt that you’ve paid it.

Pandemic Prevention Fee? 🤡
– No #Covid19 testing for the students.
– You will still stuff them up in cubicle sized rooms where beds are shared.
– You owe their parents salaries
– The medical centre is vestigial
Yet! Abia State University, steady looking for new ways to extort! pic.twitter.com/Cb0pPexKpx

Pandemic Prevention Fee is the craziest thing I’ve seen all day. Can’t say I’m surprised.
It’s these same people that will hide palliatives.

Pandemic Prevention Fee?
Show evidence of payment before entry, not even result of test?
In other words, Corona can’t attack you once you’ve made payment. Amazing.

If the SUG of Abia State University keeps mute on that nonsense “pandemic prevention fee” then they are daft. Fgs, Ikpeazu has already done a lot of harm on that state. Why allow him cash out again??

Everything about Abia State irritates my phallus
– Governor is colossal failure!!!
– He owes parents salaries
– No plans for COVID testing for students
– Students are to pay FIFTEEN THOUSAND NAIRA for “Pandemic Prevention Fee”
OKEZIE IKPEAZU God will JUDGE you…Sir!!! pic.twitter.com/LhNxaOcYwk
