The management of the Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba (AAUA) has shutdown the institution indefinitely over hike in tuition fees.

Report revealed that the decision was taken when the management of the institution got a hint of the protest being planned by the enraged students in collaboration with the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).

The students were to resume a three-week-mid-semester break occasioned by the heavy agitations for a reduction in tuition mounted by the students.

The students of the university had protested against the enforcement of the ‘No payment of tuition, No Test/Exam’ policy of the institution management which forced the school to announce a mid-semester break.

However, Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa, a newly appointed Acting Registrar of the institution disclosed the decision of the management to shut down the school indefinitely in an internal memo obtained by pressmen.

He said the memo which was issued through the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Igbekele Ajibefun, on behalf of the University Senate, directed that the students resumption back to campus from the mid-semester break be postponed.
