On the prevailing economic hardship in the country, Comrade Alenkhe appealed to the federal government to look at how it could reduce the tuition fees in the various tertiary institutions so that parents would be able to send their children and wards to higher institution.

He also urged the youths in the country to shun cultism in their various universities and concern themselves with the reason  for  being sent to school.
