FUO students embark on protests, examinations postponed indefinitely

Ogbia—Management of the Federal University, Otuoke (FUO) Bayelsa State, has postponed all examinations to have commenced on Monday for 200-400 levels students indefinitely.

According to SaharaReporters, the decision was informed by a protest embarked upon by students of the institution over the closure of the course registration portal by the school management.

The students in protestations blocked the main campus gates and denied the management of the school from accessing the administration blocks.

The school’s vice-chancellor, Professor Charles Addais said the step taken was the best reaction to douse tensions within the school environment and allow for peaceful dialogue.

He said the protest was unwarranted, stressing that out of the 10,000 students in the school, only 44 students who failed to complete their registration were affected.

He added that the school was already attending to the issues on the ground before the protest.

“The matter has been resolved and examination postponed for a week, and to resume on Monday next week. The school will hold a meeting on Thursday to resolve all grievances,” the VC said.

Meanwhile, some students are demanding that there should be a reduction in tuition fees.
