How Students’ Protest forced Closure of AAUA indefinitely

….. AAUA students protest No-school-fees, No-exam policy

Students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko in Ondo State, have restricted vehicular movement in the host community over  what they described as obnoxious policy initiated by the management.

The Irate students who trooped out in their large numbers, assembled at the school gate where they blocked the major road leading to the  community, this is just as they kicked against the ‘No school fees No exam policy’ imposed by the school.

The management, it was said, had announced that students who were yet to pay their fees won’t partake in the school exam that was earlier slated for today.

Piqued by the development, the students said they were dissatisfied with the management, alleging that it feigned ignorance over the economic downturn in the country.

One of the students who simply identified himself as Stephen, disclosed that if the school failed to rescind the policy, they won’t back track from the protest.

In another development, the Registrar of the Institution, Gbenga Arajulu, in a circular, said the management has “considered the passionate plea” of the student union over the imposed policy.

The circular reads, “management received and considered the passionate plea of the Student Union Leadership on the above subject matter. Management has directed that all students be allowed to sit for the First Semester examinations for the 2020/2021 academic
session”

“For emphasis, 100 level students who are yet to complete the processes of getting their matriculation numbers are to use their JAMB Registration Numbers to sit for
their examinations”

“However, all students are still enjoined to complete their registration processes before conclusion of their examinations”

“The purpose of this circular is to bring the above to the attention of all students for their information”

Following the protest embarked upon by the students of the Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba Akoko against the policy of the institution “No Payment Of School No Examination”.

The Management of the institution shut down the school campus  immediately.

The students of the institution considered this policy as obnoxious as  majority of the students will be denied from writing exams due to exorbitant school fee.
