The Management of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) has postponed the earlier scheduled resumption of their students indefinitely
Crisis broke out in the school when the University Authorities tried to enforce a “No payment of tuition, No Test/Exam” policy, which later led to the closure of the institution for four weeks.
Until today, the students were expected to resume from the compulsory mid-simester break by next week Monday.
However, a Circular signed by the Acting Registrar of the University, Mr Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa today says the Vice Chancellor of the school, Professor Igbekele Amos Ajibefun has on behalf of the Senate of the University, directed that resumption be postponed.
“A new date of resumption will be announced later. Once again, on behalf of the Vice Chancellor, I wish all students a happy mid-semester break”.
It was gathered that the indefinite closure of the institution may not be unconnected with the decision of the Students’ bodies under the auspices of National Association of Nigerian Students to stage a protest against what they described as an obnoxious tuition introduced by Ajibefun and his governing Council led by Pro-Chancellor, Dr Tunji Abayomi.
The Registrar said the latest circular supersedes the earlier one circulated.
Here is the full text of the Cicular
POSTPONEMENT OF RESUMPTION FROM MID-SEMESTER BREAK FOR ALL STUDENTS
