    NO SCHOOL FEES, NO EXAM POLICY: RUGIPO management denies students entry into exam hall for the second time.

    -Olabode Olaoluwa

    The Management of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, has denied students who are yet to pay their school fees the right to write examinations.

    It would be recalled, that the students, earlier protested against the policy of "No school fee, no examination" by the institution's management which led to the temporary closure of the institution on 22nd of January, this year.

    Some affected students, expressed their bitterness as regards the denial, but equally admitted they have no option than to go and pay necessary dues so as to peacefully write their exams.

    Speaking with our correspondence, the Rector of the institution, Engr. I.B. Ologunagba, expressed that all things are going smoothly with the tight security measures put in place, and that the institution is conducting an excellent examination for her students.

    When asked, the fate of students denied access to write exams, he ascertained, "We don't know if they are our students! As far as I'm concerned, our students should be around here in the school writing their papers, but as far as I know, there's nobody that has paid that won't be allowed to write their exams, and I hope, by the grace of God, we will record the same level of success in subsequent days".

    On his part, Mr. S. Ojo, the institution's PRO, while speaking with him noted that the current happenings and situations in the institution is the manifestation of perhaps, the unseriousness on parts of some students who felt that academics are conducted on credits and emphasised that it's a strange option.

    The Acting Registrar also explained that many security personnel are on ground to prevent students from doing what they did in the previous protest when this policy was first implemented in the institution and that majority of the affected students have spent the money which has been collected from their parents.

    He thereby urged the media to be friends and partners of the institution in progress, to help get to the parents of the students so as to do the needful.
