The Student Joint Campus Committee, Osun State University, Osogbo, has urged the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Professor Labode Popoola, to remove the N10,000 charge for late registration by students.

The students’ body said this through a press release signed by its Chairman, Mr Ohamara Victor Chinedu, and its General Secretary, Yusuf Muis Oluwakayodeon, on Wednesday.

According to the students, “The management of the institution closed the school portal and reopened it after much pleading but the management added a sum of N10,000 as a penalty for late registration.

The students pleaded that the management of the institution should consider the country's present economic condition and reverse its decision. “The economy of this nation is biting harder on our parents. The school management should consider the students.

“The staggering figure in the wake of this new development is that the students (almost everybody) are yet to complete their course registrations before the sudden closure of the portal in December, 2016.”

“There are fresh students who had barely settled down before the portal was closed in the same month, leaving them unaware of the school system. The entire students found it difficult to believe that the management would take such decision as it was alien to us. We thereby seek the cooperation of the VC to spare N10, 000 late registration penalty.”

The students also wrote a separate letter to the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Mr. Najeem Salawu in which they urged him to intercede for them.

Meanwhile, the VC has expressed worry that the students were in the habit of not paying school fees at the appropriate time and that some of them were indebted to the university to the tune of N2 billion

In a press briefing earlier, the VC said the situation of the unpaid school fees has become unbearable and that the system might collapse if drastic measures were not put in place to deter the defaulters; and that the institution would no longer tolerate such habit from any of its students.
