You can’t tell me how to run FUOYE –  Fuoye VC RETORTS NANS

Some days ago,  the National Association of Nigerian Students(NANS) reacted to the recent increase in the fees paid by students. They then decided to give some 'orders' concerning the situation and this act  made the VC(Vice Chancellor), Professor Kayode Soremekun,  really infuriated.
The Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Oye Ekiti in Ekiti State, Prof. Kayode Soremekun, has taken a swipe at the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), saying the students body cannot tell him “how to run the university.”
NANS had earlier threatened showdown with Prof. Soremekun over alleged increase in some fees payable by students of FUOYE; accusing him and the management of the university of “insensitivity”.
The students leaders also accused the Vice Chancellor of “misappropriation of the university’s funds in the course of executing majority of the projects under his watch.”
But the Vice Chancellor debunked the allegation of funds misappropriation, saying, “NANS cannot substantiate its claims.”
Speaking through the Public Relations Officer of the university, Godfrey Bakji, the Vice Chancellor did not deny increasing the fees.
He, however, said fees could not be increased without the approval of the National Universities Commission (NUC) and other statutory agencies.
Mr. Bakji,  the P.R.O. of the institution was quoted saying,  “These allegations are totally false. This body cannot determine to the Vice Chancellor  how to run the university.
“Remember also that as a head of the institution, he is responsible to other statutory agencies such as the NUC( National Universities Commission) and MOE. So, if what he is charging is above the regulations, this bodies wouldn’t have allowed it.
“NANS can’t substantiate their claims for misappropriation, please.” End of Quote.
Right now, this is the bone of contention at the citadel of learning. Meanwhile, the FUOYE students on an unprecedented strike are yet to resume or know what date they would be returning to school for learning to commence.
