The students of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo state, on Wednesday hit the university community to protest against the decision of the institution’s management to stop some of them who had not paid their fees, from taking the continuous assessment test.
According to reports, the university authority had earlier announced the enforcement of ‘no payment of school fees, no test/examination’ policy which would affect many of the students.
While protesting, the students in their large number distributed academic activities on the campus of the university and it was also gathered that the students stopped the ongoing continuous assessment test and sent all the students out of the classrooms.
“The university on Wednesday did not allow the students who were yet to pay or balance their school fees to take the continuous assessment test and many of the students were sent out. We then had a very massive protest against the university management where all academic activities were grounded,” one of the protesters stated.
Following the protest by the students, the university management ordered all the students to vacate the campus with immediate effect.
In a statement issued by the Registrar of the university, Dr. Sunday Ayeerun, the university asked all students to vacate the campus and resume on Monday, May 20, 2019.
