Ondo university talks tough ahead of planned resumption, warns students




Students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, AAUA, in Ondo State have been warned by the institution’s management against breaching the peace on campus upon resumption.

The students who have been at home for over a month following the closure of the institution, were directed by the management to resume on Sunday (today) in preparation for their first semester exanimations which begins on June 17.

Recall that on April 24, 2019 protest rocked the institution over the “No Fees, No Test/Examination” policy introduced by the management.

The students described the action of the school’s management as an effort to make indigent students drop out of school going by the exorbitant fees of between N180,000 and N250,000 earlier put in place by the management which most most of them have not been able to pay up. 

Realising that the issue might be revisited by the students, the AAUA’s management via a circular issued on Sunday, has now banned the students from holding any form of congress on campus.

The circular, signed by the institution’s Registrar, Mr Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa, read, “All students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko are welcome back from their mid semester break.

“As the university reopened today, 9th June, 2019, for the conclusion of first semester 2018/2019 session, all students are advised to go about their normal academic activities and preparation for first semester examinations, which commence on Monday, 17th June, 2019.

“No any form of Congress of students will be allowed on campus, as all students are expected to settle down immediately to prepare for their examinations.

“All law abiding students are assured of adequate security, as law enforcement agencies are fully on ground. Serious sanctions await any one who plans or attempts to disrupt the peace on campus.”
