SAVE OUR SOUL! THE PURPOSE DOCTOR CALLS FOR SUPPORT FOR SUICIDE AND DRUG ABUSE VICTIMS.
Over the years, Wisdom Class Organisation has been in the forefront of the advocacy for the prevention of suicide and drug abuse among our youths and in the tertiary institutions. The prevalence of drug abuse among youths is very high and suicide attempts and completed suicide is on the increase. Inability to pay school fees is the prevalent cause of suicide among students. The anxiety and depression secondary to school fees payment deadline is difficult to treat and it makes the students unable to concentrate and prepare for the examinations. I believe that if given ample time, students will be able to pay their school fees without compromising academic excellence nor their health and life. We therefore call for the eradication of school fees deadline in all public institution of learning.
I must also use this opportunity to mention that while I was soliciting for public support for the payment of school fees for severely depressed patients on treatment, I was inundated with calls from many other students who are unable to pay school fees on expiry of the initial deadline. As a result, my organisation is placed on red alert to receive students who may attempt suicide due to failure to beat the rescheduled deadline.
We advocate an extension of the deadline beyond the examinations to afford the students more time to work and pay after the examinations. The harsh economic situation of the country is evident by our inability to support the victims.
We there call on the government and the general public to support us pay indegent students and beneficiary school fees.
