No Comments

The management of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo in Ondo State has announced the reopening of the school after three months of closure.

The management also instructed all new students (ND1 and ND2) to resume on Monday, April 30th 2018 while the returning students would resume on the 14th of May 2018.

This was contained in a statement by the chairman of the governing council of the institution, Banji Alabi and made available to journalists on Tuesday.


The institution also noted that the returning students would pay the sun of N12,000 as reparation fees which would be accompanied by a certificate.

"A certificate to the effect that they will henceforth be of good behavior and comply with all rules and regulations of the school.

"The letters are to be signed by a prominent member of society eg JP, Members of the state house of assembly, civil servants not below the rank of a permanent secretary: chairman of the local government council or a legal practitioner."

The council acknowledged the cooperation of various stakeholders while stating that it would adopt all legally-available means to prevent any breakdown of law and order or disruption of gains already recorded as the school resume academic activities.

"We will support all legitimate avenues to engage with any member of the Polytechnic community and utilize every constructive contribution.

"However, we discourage any activity or attempt to reverse the progress so far made.

"While stakeholders are entitled to the freedom of speech, association and peaceful gathering, it is important to do so within the limits of Nigerian law."

Governor Akeredolu had earlier this month warned that the students must pay the N168m worth of property destroyed when the students went on rampage early this year.

SUNSHINE HERALD recalled that the state government on January 23rd closed the polytechnic after a rampage by some students of the institution over a 'no fee no exam policy'.
