OUTCOME OF THE INTERACTIVE SESSION BETWEEN THE UNIVERSITIES MANAGEMENT AND THE STUDENT’S LEADERSHIP.
1. IN view of the Union’s position and it’s proactive nature, there has been prevalent complaints emanating from some students populace with respect to unpaid charges.
2. An impromptu meeting was convened between the University’s administration and the students leadership led by Comr. Dajoh Jacob,to engage and plead with the school on the need to grant concession to students who could make payments for their surcharge, but IN the long run, couldn’t thereafter afford their school fees appropriately.
3. While responding, the VC reemphasised that there has been so much time for any one who really want to pay school charges to do, owing to the longer periods of the mid semester breakmid semester break and subsequently the ASUU strikeASUU strike embarked upon IN November last year.
4. Moreso, capitalizing on the Senate’s decision of “No school charges, No exams, he further reiliterated the need for school charges to be paid, hence the school already running a deficit and IN it’s near decaying state.
5. On a more serious note, he posited that, the School’s senate is the highest making decision body and for fear of sanctions wouldn’t want to temper with a resolution reached at; He therefore suggested an option of “DEFERMENT” if genuinely some students can’t afford their school charges.
6. “Deferment, is not a punishment, but a way of giving you a leverage, to go prepare and come back better prepared for learning and the earlier you know about this, the better.
7. Meanwhile, the union has always tried standing with the students and will always do, only with your support to exercise their duties as deem fit.
8. In a nutshell, registration and screening continues until clearly stated otherwise.
9. In attendance were, the VC and all Principal Officers,
SU President, Speaker to Council, and others…
