The Federal University Oye-Ekiti has postponed her matriculation ceremony for newly admitted students in the 2019/2020 academic session.
The matriculation ceremony was initially slated for Friday, the 20th of March. It has however been shifted till the 2nd of April. This was released in a memo by the acting Students’ Union Government and broadcast by Olanrewaju Olagunju, the acting Public Relations Officer.
Olagunju said “the postponement is necessary as the school’s academic staff is on strike presently. The strike considerably affects the school’s activities.”
There have been speculations as to the actual reason for the postponement.
Asiat Jimoh, a 400 level student of the English and Literary Studies department said “I think it was postponed because of the newly admitted law students. I doubt if they are done with their registrations. What’s even the school’s plan as regards them? The session has started since January for other students and they just admitted these ones last week. Will they have a different academic calendar? People say law is very difficult to study. How will they meet up?”
The Faculty of Law has been newly introduced by the university in the 2019/2020 academic year. On Thursday, the 12th of March, the portal reflected that admitted law students should proceed with their registrations.
