Shame: Achievers University Sends Students Home Due To Lack Of Electricity

AKURE - The Management of a Private University based in Ondo state, Achievers University has announced the closure of the institution indefinitely.

In a letter to parents, the Vice-Chancellor of Achievers University, Owo, Prof S. O. Aje, explained that the closure was due to the unruly behavior of students.

The letter reads, “We regret to intimate you that Management has temporarily closed down the School and suspended Academic activities until further notice.

This is the sequel to the demonstration embarked upon by the students since yesterday night on account of the irregular supply of Electricity.

“For the past 14 years of the existence of Achievers University, we have been very consistent in the supply of electricity for a minimum of 18 hours every day.

“This has been made possible by the array of 8 Generators owned by the University.

Last Thursday, 12th August 2021, the two giant generations supplying students’ area collapsed.

"Immediate steps were taken to remedy the situation. One of the generators was fixed on Monday 16th while repair work on the other is ongoing. This repair cost the University millions of Naira, but we are not complaining as we see it as a duty that we must perform for a conducive learning environment.

“Unfortunately our students are not patient enough for us to fully fix the problems. The situation got out of hand yesterday night as the students went on a rampage.

“Many WhatsApp messages are flying around suggesting that the students are poised for war.

“Management has, therefore, directed that all academic activities be suspended forthwith until electricity is fully restored.

"However, all the students that are fingered to have actively participated in disruption of peace in the University community will be disciplined in line with the provisions of the University students handbook.”
