AAUA front gate

Authorities of the Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba Akoko, AAUA, in Ondo State have barred students from holding any congresses as the students were recalled from their mid-semester break.

This coming almost five weeks after the school was shut by its management for the students to embark on a mid-semester break.

Students of the state institution had protested against "No School Payment, No Test/Exam Policy" of the school management causing the school to close down the University.

Mr. Opeoluwa Akinfenwa, the Acting Registrar of the institution announced the resumption in a circular obtained by SaharaReporters.

Akinfenwa said the students were to be back on campus today (Sunday) in order to prepare for their first semester examinations. 

The circular read, "All students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko are welcome back from their mid-semester break. As the university reopened today, June 9, 2019, for the conclusion of first semester 2018/2019 session, all students are advised to go about their normal academic activities and preparation for first semester examinations, which commence on Monday, 17th June, 2019."

Meanwhile the school management has warned the students from holding any congress on the campus.

The directive followed a tip that the Students' Union Government of the school called for a congress on campus to address the issue of the obnoxious hike in their tuition.

However, the management warned in the circular: “No any form of congress of students will be allowed on campus, as all students are expected to settle down immediately to prepare for their examinations.”

“All law-abiding students are assured of adequate security, as law enforcement agencies are fully on the ground. Serious sanctions await any one who plans or attempts to disrupt the peace on campus." 

SaharaReporters reports that the AAUA students had been protesting over hike in their tuitions which was increased last year by over 200 percent.
