AAUA refutes selling of Handouts to students, insists not part of school’s culture
The report that Some students of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, have cried out over the unending expensive handouts they are forced to buy from lecturers every semester has been dismissed by the university’s authorities.
It was alleged that buying of handouts attracts good marks in some of the courses so students, therefore, pay through their nose to obtain them.
But reacting the university said the report was untrue and selling of handouts not part of the school’s culture.
Selling of Handouts Not Our Culture– AAUA Management
The attention of the Management of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria, has been drawn to an online publication which claimed that some lecturers in the University are selling handouts and textbooks to the students of the Institution.
The Management of the University wishes to explicitly state that the claims by the online medium is untrue, unfounded and alien to the culture of the University, and should, therefore, be disregarded by the public, especially, students, parents, guardians and members of the University Community.
While we want to note with pride that despite the financial difficulty in the country, the Institution has not, in any way, compromised its standard, integrity and values.
As a matter of fact, because the University does not condone any form of extortions of students whatsoever, there have been various channels made available for our the students to report any perceived extortion and infraction on their rights.
Once again, the University is urging the general public to treat the contents of the publication as false and calumny.
Rest assured that the University Management, without mincing words, will continue to uphold the extant rules and regulations governing the administration of the Institution.
