This is good news coming the way of students of the Ekiti State University (EKSU) who resumed for academic activities on 3 June. The state Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has advised the authorities of the institution to allow students pay their school fees in installments.
Dr. Fayemi gave the advice after a series of meetings with representatives of the students, Parents Forum and the authorities of the institution. The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olayinka Oyebode, said that the format to be adopted for payment would be worked out by the authorities of the institution and communicated to the students accordingly.
He urged the students to reciprocate this gesture by complying with the arrangement that would be put in place by the university authorities. Some students who spoke with P.M.NEWS Campus Square expressed happiness on the development.
“I work as a DJ in school so as to be able to support my parents in paying my school fees, but now I don’t have to trouble myself that much since I can now pay my fees instalmentally,” said David Timothy, a 200 level Engineering student.
Another student, Lateefa Salami, said she is happy about the new development, and thanked the governor for being considerate.
