FUOYE Students Protest:
Students of Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), on Monday 14th May 2018 embarked on a protest against the institution’s directive preventing students who had not paid their school fees from sitting for the ongoing first semester examination.
The institution’s directive had already posted a notice preventing students who had not paid their school fees from sitting for the ongoing first semester examination.
One of the protesters, who pleaded for anonymity, said that some students were denied access to the examination hall on May 10 inspite of the fact that the deadline for the payment of school fees had not lapsed.
NAN also reports that the protest disrupted the examination. But the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Godfrey Badji, told NAN that some students who had not fully paid their school fees were the ones protesting.
The students expressed their grievances as some were denied access to the exam hall even though the school fees deadline had not elapsed.
