• UNIABUJA students’ riot disrupts ongoing exam

    Protest by the students of University of Abuja against non-accreditation of some courses at the university has disrupted the ongoing examination at the institution.

    The school consequently announced postponement of examinations till Monday, the 18th of February. However, the students who were dispersed by security operatives have threatened to continue if the accreditation issue is not resolved immediately.

    Scores of students were at the entrance of the University’s main campus singing solidarity songs .

    The students embarked on a protest to disrupt examinations fixed by the school authority, asserting that until the various departments facing accreditation problem is resolved, they will not rest.

    In April 2012, the Federal Government had approved N2 billion for the school to resolve all issues of non-accreditation but the Vice-Chancellor said he only accessed the money last month. The students are however angry over the seemingly unending promises.

    The students proceeded to the mini-campus where there was heavy security presence to prevent any violence but in spite of this, they made desperate attempt to seal up the premises to drive home their grievances.

    Some lecturers in solidarity with the students revealed that the vice-chancellor has done more harm than good with the failed assurances to the students. They ask the Federal Government not to keep mum over the white paper report submitted to it.
