In a dateless, referenceless letter signed by the management of Cross River University of Technology (CRUTECH) allegedly emanating from the Office of the Vice Chancellor of the already mentioned tertiary academic institution, state owned University has been closed down indefinitely.
This decision was arrived at by the management of CRUTECH following students protest and destruction of property. What follows is an excerpt of the press release:
Following students protest against Management decision to implement the 'No-Fees-No-Exams' policy of the University and the accompanying destruction of property, the following decision have been taken:
a) the University us hereby closed indefinitely
b) all students are given up to 3:00pm, 22 May 2017 to vacate their campuses
c) meanwhile, the University Management is taking stock of all the damaged property, the cost of which will be borne by the defaulting students
d) a future date for the current examination will be announced at an appropriate date.
Students if CRUTECH protested, Monday, management decision to prevent students who are owing the institution 'school fees' from writing examination.
It's alleged that there's destruction of property, if this is true (NegroidHaven is yet to ascertain this piece of information) , couldn't there have been a peaceful protest? Is it not the same set of students who can't pay school fees that will pay 'damage fee'? Hmm!
