UNIBEN recalls five rusticated students

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Prof. Faraday Orunmwense, yesterday announced a recall of five rusticated students of the university. He described as untrue an allegation that the Chancellor of the University of Benin, His Highness, Muhammad Sanusi II, Sarkin Kano, was behind increase in the university’s accommodation fees.

Orumwense said none of the students was rusticated for protesting against increase in the university’s accommodation charges but that some of them were rusticated after due process was observed for attempting to disrupt the university’s 47th Founder’s Day and 43rd Convocation ceremonies.

He said after the increment, the students were too hasty in protesting the increment without exhausting appropriate mechanism of the university for addressing students’ concerns. According to Orumwense, “it is difficult to understand why the Students’ Union would call a protest within 24 hours of receiving the assurances of the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, who, upon receiving the students’ protest letter, assured them that he would speedily look into the matter of slight increase in charges and review of accommodation charges, which at any rate is optional.”
