students of Otuoke University protest closure of course registration portal

Students of the Federal University, Otuoke, Bayelsa State, on Monday orchestrated a peaceful protest against the abrupt shutdown of the course registration portal of the institution by its management.

The discontented students which were led by the President of the Students’ Union Government, MacDonald Felix, and the Public Relations Officer, Faith Okoto, demanded the portal to be re-opened to enable them to register their several courses.

According to reports gotten, the protesting undergraduates shut off the gates of the main campus of the school in the community of former President Goodluck Jonathan, preventing workers from entry and exit.

The incident resulted in the authorities of the university postponing examinations scheduled to commence on Monday.

Initially, before the protest, the placard-carrying students were said to have approached the Dean of Students Affairs, Dr Joseph Umoru, for a way forward, but he allegedly told them to “go and commit suicide” if they could not suspend their studies as a result of late registration.

The students said,

“Some students have applied and many have already completed their applications but the ICT Unit had issues where some enrollments were deleted. Some courses, which were registered were later de-registered among other glitches.”

However, all efforts made to confirm from Umoru for his comments proved abortive.
