The letter marked HCF/Corr. Gen./23 dated September 20 read in part, “we refer to discussions the government has held with you in the recent past on the subject of subventions.”
“We write to inform you that the state government is unable to continue with the grant of subventions to your institutions. Please, note that there are no areas or financial obligations past, present or future arising from this decision of government.”
“Already, some of the management of the institutions have passed the message to their staff to prepare them for the challenges that may follow the government’s decision.
“Some staff of the institutions are already exercising fears that the state government may go further to retrench some of them. (The Guardian)
