Open University Students Protest Over Delayed Exams

Hundreds of students of the National Open University of Nigeria, Lagos, embarked on a protest on Wednesday on the school premises at Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island.

A lot of the students confessed they staged the protest because of the arbitrary manner in which the school postponed the examinations.

One of the students, who identified himself only as Michael, said, “We usually hold examinations at the Centre for Management Development, Shangisha. However, recently, they told us that we would be having examinations in Victoria Island.

“We were supposed to have started examinations on Monday but the school authorities said we should come back on Tuesday. On Tuesday, we were told to come back on Wednesday.

“On Wednesday, we waited till 12pm but the school staff shunned us.”

Another student, who craved anonymity, said the school never provided them with course materials and handouts even though they paid for it.

When the Media and Information Unit of the institution was contacted for comment, an employee, who identified himself only as Noah, said the director was not available for comment. He denied there was a protest at the school.
