The reasons why we recalled five rusticated students, UNIBEN VC

Vice Chancellor of the University of Benin, Professor Faraday Orumwense, yesterday explained why the institution recalled five students who were rusticated for protesting against increment of various fees.
Prof. Orumwense said the students were not rusticated for protesting but for attempting to disrupt the University’s 47th Founder’s Day and 43rd Convocation ceremonies.
Orumwense who denied banning campus fellowship said the five students were recalled after intervention from various groups and well-meaning individuals.
The five students who were members of the institution’s Student Union Government are President of UNIBEN SUG, Osamudiamen Ogbidi, Justus Aidenagnon, Innocent Momodu, Goodnews Ehiabhi and Benjamin Majekodumi.
Three of them were rusticated for one academic session while two of them were rusticated for two academic sessions.
They were also barred from holding any office in the campus or participating in student union activities.
Prof. Orumwense noted that the protest by the students on November 23 was uncalled for and designed to serve the illegitimate purpose of portraying the institution in bad light as well as disrupting the academic calendar.
He insisted that the Chancellor of the institution, HRH Muhammad Sanusi II, the Sarkin Kano, was not involved in the determining of new charges but the responsibility of the institution’s Governing Council.
The UNIBEN VC said the new charges were meant for new students and not old students, adding that the protesters pelted the convoy of Sanusi with sachet water.www.naijabestloaded.com
