The students of Ekiti State University (EKSU) are angered by the “no school fees, no lecture” policy introduced by school management, and have therefore embarked on a protest, barricading the entrance to the school.

About 1,500 students took part in the peaceful protest by mounting a barricade at the school main gate to both members of staff and visitors to the school.

The Vice Chancellor of EKSU, Prof. Oladipo Aina during a press briefing said the new policy had come to stay.

“Before the policy of no school fee, no examinations, the students were owing the school close to N2 billion before I became the VC. The new stand of the management now is ‘no school fee, no lectures’ and we are not going to compromise that stand.

“We expect our students to abide by the new policy,” the VC declared.

The Vice Chancellor said the university had not been officially closed-down, contrary to rumours being peddled in some quarters, rather it had only been sealed off to 1,500 legitimate students, who have paid their fee out of 14,000 students, who have not.

NAN reports that the students declared in vehement terms that nothing short of a reversal will make them shift ground.
