AFTER over two months of closure of academic and non-academic activities at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State, following the crisis which engulfed the institution, the management has announced the resumption of all education programmes.




FUTO students had on February 17, 2017, protested an alleged increments in school fees, course registrations, transport fare, Internet and hostel fees, among other things.

The peaceful protest was later hijacked, leading to the destruction of the Senate building of the university, the Information and Communication Technology Centre and an attack on a branch of Diamond Bank on the campus.

The institution, which was conducting its first semester examinations for the 2016 /2017 academic session, ordered the students to vacate the university and announced its indefinite closure.

However, the Registrar, John Nnabuihe, in a statement, announced the immediate suspension of the closure and the commencement of all academic programmes in the university.

Nnabuihe said that no undergraduate would be allowed access into the campus without proof that he or she has paid the sum of N12,500 as fee for damages incurred during the protest. The students are also required to sign an undertaking to be of good behaviour.

The registrar stated that the continuation of the abandoned examinations would begin three weeks from the date of resumption.
