Students of the Federal University Otuoke (FUOTUOKE), Bayelsa State were seen airing their grievances over what they termed the premature closure of the university portal by the school authorities.
In multiple photos and videos shared online, students were seen at the university main gate carrying placards bearing various inscriptions calling on the school management to reopen the portal.
They were said to have ignored calls by the university management to resume their ongoing First Semester Examination today, November 1, as they reportedly blocked the school’s entrance preventing movement within the school premises.
During the protest, the aggrieved students demanded that the school portal be reopened so that the affected students who were unable to complete their registration during the ICT upgrade period can complete the process.
It was reported that professor Teddy Charles Adias, the institution’s vice-chancellor had earlier directed that students who had genuine claims be allowed to write exams scheduled to hold on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday ( 1st, 2nd, and 3rd November 2021) and sign the score-sheets provided they had evidence of payment of fees.
