AAU plans resumption. The management of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, has announced that its Senate would meet to discuss the resumption of academic activity at the university, which was closed two weeks ago.

Prof. Asomwan Adagbonyin, the interim Vice Chancellor of the institution, announced this on Tuesday while briefing journalists at the Edo State office of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in Benin City on the institution’s activities.

He added that the purported increase in school prices that prompted student protests and the institution’s collapse was incorrect, saying that fresh students’ tuition rates were raised while returning students’ fees remained unchanged.

“There are plans to open the institution as soon as the school’s Senate meets to discuss it.”

“There is no increment in tuition fees of returning students of AAU and the students of the university have been allowed to pay their school fees in two instalments to reduce the burden of paying once,” he added.

He said management decided to close the school as the students’ protest became violent, with some of the students attacking fellow students and lecturers, inflicting injuries on them on campus, as well as preventing commendation service for a late Professor from being held on campus.

Following the transgressions, management disbanded the Students Union Government leadership and established a Caretaker Committee, stating that erring students will be held accountable for their acts.

He described the political dimension of the AAU protest as “a deeply entrenched conspiracy” and urged those who have turned the university into a war zone to give peace a chance, just as he said a lot of misinformation was in the air and urged members of the public to get correct information from the university’s website and put an end to the falsehood.

The Vice-Chancellor while announcing that 90 medical students who recently graduated from the university would soon be inducted, debunked reports that the institution was offering fake degrees in mechanical and electrical engineering.

He said the university has already paid the prescribed fees to the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria for the re-accreditation of the courses whose accreditation lapsed
