Academic activities Suspended indefinitely over students’ protest In Kaduna College
The Kaduna State College of Education, Gidan Waya, has announced the indefinite suspension of academic activities in the institution.
The suspension order was conveyed in a circular by the college’s Registrar, Mr Marcus Timothy, issued to the school community on Friday in Kaduna.
The circular said the suspension came into effect following the students’ protests over a planned increase in tuition fees that resulted in the loss of two lives.
“Consequent upon the aborted planned students’ demonstration last Monday, June 28, government has advised the management to close the college till further notice.
“To this effect, all academic activities in the college are suspended.
“However, members of staff are expected to report for their normal work and schedules,” the circular said.
A group, Advocate for Good Governance, Lagos State Chapter, has commended the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for providing essential infrastructure across the state.
The group made this known in a statement titled ‘Something Good is Happening in Lagos!!!!’ and signed by its Coordinator, Mr Biyi Adebisi, on Saturday.
It said Sanwo-Olu had shown decisiveness and vision, despite the challenges faced by his administration.
The statement read, “The recent #EndSARS protest, which led to the wanton destruction of properties in Lagos State, creating a huge loss for the Lagos State Government led by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, might have thrown a clog in the wheel of progress of the nation’s economic seat. However, the Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led administration has shown its commitment and strong resolve to reposition the state for more industrial cum economic growth and unprecedented development.
