RUGIPO Announces Reparation Fees and Resumption Date After 3 Months Closure

Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, Ondo State (RUGIPO), has announced the new resumption dates after a three-month closure over students’ violent protest. All students of the polytechnic are hereby informed.
All returning Students should also note that they are to make a payment of N12, 000 as reparation fees on the order of the school management. All students are hereby urged to take the directives seriously. See full details below.


The management of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, Ondo State (RUGIPO), has asked its students to return to campus for academic activities after a three-month closure over students’ violent protest against “no school fees, no examination policy” adopted by the institution in January.
The school announced its resumption, following the adoption of the recommendations of a panel set up by the government to probe January 22 violence that led to the school’s closure. The panel slammed N168 million damages on students for destroying school property during the violence.
According to a statement signed by Banji Alabi, the Chairman of the Governing Council, the council has authorised the re-opening of the school.
“All new students (ND 1 & HND 1) are to resume on Monday 30th April, 2018 while returning students are to resume on 14th May, 2018.
“The returning students are expected to make a payment of N12,000 as reparation fees and a certificate to the effect that they will henceforth be of good behavior and comply with all rules and regulations of the school to be signed by a prominent member of society, members of the state House of Assembly, civil servants not below the rank of a Permanent Secretary, Chairman of the Local Government Council or a legal practitioner,” the statement partly read.
Reacting, SUG Public Relations Officer, Ayodele Oluwatobi, described the development as “good news”, saying students were elated to be called back to school. He said students were ready to abide by the condition laid down by the school.
