The students of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), has been mandated to pay a sum of N20,000 as a reparation fee.
The University located in the Ondo State of Nigeria released a circular to all students on Thursday stating the school’s resumption date while noting that all students must swear an oath of good behaviour before a Commissioner of oath.
AAUA set to resume
The students of the school had in November 2021 protested a policy by the management stopping any student who had not paid or completed their school fees from sitting for the 2020/2021 session first semester examinations.
The protest that ensued forced the school to shut down its activities indefinitely.
The circular considered the committee’s preliminary report concerning the recent student unrest.
It noted that the University had approved a reopening of academic activities by Sunday, 30th January 2022, while the suspended examination for the academic session would commence immediately on Monday, 31st January 2022.
The school mandated that “all students must pay a reparation fee of Twenty thousand Naira (N20,000.00) only before resumption, and swear an oath of good behaviour before a Commissioner of Oath.
“All students must submit a letter of good conduct duly signed by their Parent/Guardian, and must show evidence before being admitted to the campus.”
The Student Union reacting to this development has urged the student community to remain calm, as they are working to address some policies that are not favourable to the students.
“We are very much hopeful that the university authority would entertain our positions and reconsider more lenient policies,” SU President Ogunsanmi Kolade said.
