FUOYE students protest ‘no school fees, no examination’ directive



Students of Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), on Monday embarked on a protest against the institution’s directive preventing students who had not paid their school fees from sitting for the ongoing first semester examination.

Further reports confirmed that the students, who took to the Oye-Ikole highway, impeded vehicular movement for hours before returning to the main gate of the institution to continue the protest.

One of the protesters, who pleaded for anonymity, told The Nation reporter that some students were denied access to the examination hall on May 10 in spite of the fact that the deadline for the payment of school fees had not lapsed.
