The management of Ekiti State University(EKSU), Ado- Ekiti have threatened to expel about 10,000 students who have not paid the mandatory reparation fee of N6, 500 and completed the screening exercise imposed on the students by the university on or before December 14th.
The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Oladipo Aina said this at a meeting held on Friday with principal officers of the institution. It would be recalled that the Ekiti State University(EKSU) was closed down on September 28 following the violent demonstration of student triggered by the news of the death of a final year student of the Accountancy Department, Abiola Yusuf, who was knocked down by a vehicle, which led to the destruction of some buildings , looting of the livestocks from the university farm and burning of about ten vehicles.
The school authorities however reopened the institution on December 3rd with a strict condition on all its students to pay the reparation fee and undergo a screening exercise or lose their ‘studentship’ with the institution.
A source who pleaded anonymity said, “The university has fixed December 14 , 2012 for all students to conclude the screening exercise. Any student who fails to meet up with the deadline may lose his or her studentship.
“The screening exercise requires all students to submit a sworn affidavit of good conduct, letter of undertaking from their parents as well as receipts for payment of the reparation fee and evidence of payment of school fees, among other demands.
“Some of the students have complied with this directive and some are still undergoing the process.
But about one third of the student population have not turned up and the university authorities have agreed that any student who neglects this directive would no longer be regarded as a student of EKSU.”
Confirming this development, the Deputy Registrar Information of EKSU, Mr. Olubunmi Ajibade assured that the authorities are firm on the ultimatum of the screening exercise, adding that there would be no going back on the strict condition.
