Open Varsity Students Protest Shift Of Exams

Students of the National Open University of Nigeria, Lagos, embarked on a protest on Wednesday on the school premises at Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island.

The protest according to the students, was staged to protest the arbitrary manner in which the school postponed their examinations.

A student of  the institution identified as Michael, said they usually hold their examinations at the Centre for Management Development, Shangisha, but recently, they were  told that they would be having their exams on Victoria Island.

“We were supposed to have started examinations on Monday but the school authorities said we should come back on Tuesday. On Tuesday, we were told to come back on Wednesday.

“On Wednesday, we waited till 12pm but the school staff shunned us.”

Another student, who craved anonymity, said the school never provided them with course materials and handouts even though they paid for it.

When the Media and Information Unit of the institution  was contacted for comment, an employee, who identified himself only as Noah, said the director was not available for comment. He denied there was a protest at the school.
