The management of the Ondo State University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH) has directed students to proceed on a compulsory 2-weeks break after the students protested against the Institution for increasing tuition fee from N70, 000 to N250, 000, a Circular from the Registrar has shown.
The acting Registrar of OSUSTECH, Felix Akinnusi who reportedly made the development known in a Circular (not seen by Campusbiz) in Okitipupa said the holiday was for the management to deliberate on some of the demands of the students during the protest which disrupted academic activities in the school.
“The Senate of OSUSTECH in an emergency meeting over students’ protest which disrupted academic activities directed all students to go on a two-week break.
“The two weeks break, which took effect from April 24 to May 6, is to allow the management to take a critical look into some of the demands of the students,” he said.
The students had protested over an increase in their tuition fees from N70,000 to N250,000.
