“On this note, any student who intends to check result will do so by generating the necessary Remita invoice from their student portal. Kindly note that payment will be made using your ATM cards on the platform”.

People however registered their displeasure with the policy.

Ifeanyi Amaka, through the comment section said – “Why is everything in this country aimed at robbing ordinary Nigerians? One now needs to pay to see their result! To send transcript within or outside the country has always been a fleecing norm! I did a programme remotely at Edinburgh, and one sees their result in real time, and can send transcript electronically to any recipient at no cost whatsoever! In our own country, absurdity walks on four legs!”

Chibuzor Umeh, through the same medium asked – “Very unfortunate situation. So, you have to pay to see results. What happens to the exam fees stated in the school fees list?
