#SaveEKSU: Ekiti To Engage EKSU Over Allegations Of Missing Scripts, High Tuition Fees
Ekiti State Government has promised to engage authorities at Ekiti State University to address the allegation of missing scripts which many students have complained about.
The state government made this known after students of the institution used the hashtag #SaveEKSU on Twitter to vent their anger against the situation.
The students also tabled other matters, with one campaign flyer saying, “Say no to mass failure; say no to high tuition fees.”
Others complained about the absence of basic amenities in the school campus despite the high tuition fees.
With various present and past students speaking up, the hashtag topped Twitter trend table earlier in the day.
The hashtag got the attention of the state government which reacted with a statement issued by the Commissioner of Information and Values Orientation, Hon. Akin Omole.
The statement reads;
The Government of Ekiti State has come to learn of a trending hashtag #SaveEksu, which has become a rallying point for students and other stakeholders in the Ekiti State University (EKSU) to vent their displeasures about issues affecting them.
Government would like to assure everyone that Ekiti state government is monitoring the development and engaging the authorities at the Ekiti State University to support them in addressing the issues comprehensively. You have a voice, you have spoken, and we have heard you.
Read some complaints from some students below;
Imagine getting to 300level and your cgpa is unknown to you and the person working hard to pay those expensive fees and charges.
Depression is real, suicide is real.
The country's educational system is damaged, that we know.
