Prior to the incident happening, the University’s management body issued a warning that any student owing over 70% will be asked to defer automatically by the school’s system.
As stubborn as students are, none paid attention to the communique from the school until reality caught up with the students.
Though students were allowed to take the mid-semester exams and so thought nothing of that sort was imminent.
The 6000 students are merely an estimated number. Looking at the school’s population of over 85, 000.
Dr. Norris noted that the students owing fees situation has been there for quite a long time now. So the academic board this time around decided to go for a new policy to help overcome that ancient problem facing the University. He retorted.
Students are expected to pay about 70% of the fees before registering their courses for the semester. However, this has not been complied by students, hence the decision to arrive at. He continued.
The PRO reiterated that most of these monies are been channeled into many things by the students. He said, some of the students have used the fees to buy Uber, others also have ventured into bakeries and other things to generate monies for themselves.
So the position taken by the University is a step in the right direction.
