The Vice-Chancellor, Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, Prof Edward Olanipekun, on behalf of the university Senate, approved the suspension of academic activities on the campus for two weeks with effect from Monday.
The shutdown is a result of the protests by students who were demanding a review of late registration fees and other fees levied by the institution.
The Students’ Union Government Public Relations Officer, Dotun Ogunsanya, who described the fees as an extortion, said, “This is more worrisome especially that we do not enjoy any facility in the school. There has not been a power supply within and outside the university premises for many years now.”
The Head, Directorate of Information and Corporate Affairs, Bode Olofinmuagun, in a statement, directed all students of the university to vacate the campus immediately and should not be seen within the premises for the next two weeks.”
