FUOYE Students Protest Over lack of Basic amenities

Fuoye Students – Students of the Federal University, Oye–Ekiti, today staged a peaceful protest, over Wi-Fi, poor road, healthcare. The students marched across the institution on Monday morning demanding improved living and learning services.

The protest has disrupted the academic and administrative activities on campus.
The students want the management of FUOYE to repair a major access road across the campus, provide Wi-Fi, and improve services at the health centre, reported our correspondent monitoring the development at the school.

Concern about examination results of the previous semester which have not been released since the start of a new semester is also part of the reasons for the protest.

The students alleged they had been given false assurances on the repair of the road, though some men began work on the road two months ago. However, barely into the work, the men stopped appearing on site, the students said.

It was learnt that the road contract had been awarded to Dere Construction Company, however, the project came to a halt weeks after the contractors began work on it.
A student of the institution said;

 The protest is actually called for, considering the poor condition of the school road. The school road, from phase 1–2 is not motorable anytime it rains; the students experience difficulties trying to trek on the road.

 Everywhere is muddy, the situation of the school is generally appalling.”

 We are not here to fight; rather, we are here to let the management know the challenges students are facing. We’ve been doing a lot of consultations and consolidation and evidently that has not yield forth fruit. Said the Student Union Body,

 The students are beginning to lose interest in us and that is the reason why we are staging a protest here today.

 Normally, it’s supposed to be a day protest but if there is no form of positive reaction from the management, it can last more than a day.

The university is yet to comment on the protest, as efforts to get one as proved abortive.
