The Federal University of Oye Ekiti in Ekiti (FUOYE) has been shit down following protest by the students of the institution.
According to a statement by the Acting Registrar of the institution Oyeyimika Koyejo-Fasakin, this is to forestall a break down of Law and Order.
The Statement noted that prior to the proest by the students, the managemnbt was already taking steps to respond to the demands of the students. He mentioned that as a mark of goodwill, the Vice-Chancellor was billed to hold a meeting with the students’ representatives at 13:00 hours on Tuesday, 15th May 2018.
The management also granted a 3-day lecture free period to allow students organise with their parents and guardians as regards their fees.
But disregarding all of these efforts made by the management,some students still deem it fit to cause chaos which have the potential to cause a breakdown of law and order.
“It is against this background that the university has been shut down until normalcy is restored to campus.
“Please be informed that the University Management is not insensitive to the plight of students who are yet to fully pay their fees and only dialogue can resolve a matter such as this.
“Lastly, we apologise to all our laws abiding students who are having to contend with the brunt of this episode. The resumption of normal academic activities will be communicated in due course.” He stated.
