Federal College of Education (FCE), Osiele Closed Over Student’s Leadership Crisis
The management of Federal College of Education (FCE), Osiele, Abeokuta, has shut the institution indefinitely following the leadership tussle that engulfed the Students’ Union Government (SUG) after the elections.
According to the Registrar of the College, Mr. Abidemi Akinolato, the management shut the school to forestall any likely violence from some sections of the students, who were dissatisfied with the result of the election.
Akinolato explained that a faction of the students had rejected the result of the SUG election, which was conducted on August 27 this year.
The registrar stated that the aggrieved students had gone to the residence of the institution’s Provost, Dr Ayodele Ajayi, around 12:30am on August 28, and demanded annulment of the election.
He explained that all efforts by the Provost to pacify the agitating students proved abortive as they insisted on election nullification despite the fact that it was conducted under peaceful atmosphere.
The registrar further said the agitating students alleged series of rigging to back up their demand, but the Provost refused to entertain their demand because it was based on factional argument.
