Dr Jimoh Ayinla, the Acting Provost, College of Education, Ilorin, says students of the institution have shown remorsefuless and pleadsd for the reopening of the college to continue their academic session.
The acting provost disclosed this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Ilorin.
Ayinla said that the students had realised their mistakes and wrote an apology letter through the Students Union Government (SUG) of the institution to Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and the state Ministry of Tertiary Institutions.
“They wrote an apology letter through the student executives seeking for pardon and promised never to repeat such rude and uncultured act again,” he said.
The acting provost revealed that the college management, through the order from the ministry, had constituted a committee on the issue.
He said that the committee would investigate those involved and decide on appropriate punishment to anybody or group found guilty of the incident, in order to prevent future occurrence.
“The committee just concluded their three days meeting and we are appealing to the government that normalcy has returned and that the school should be reopened for academic session to continue,” he said.
Ayinla however explained that the closure only affected the NCE students who misbehaved, while other students continued with their various programmes and registration continued for new students.
The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the college on Oct. 19, was shut following a protest embarked upon by some students of NCE programme.
NAN gathered that the college management had been lenient with the students by allowing them write the first semester examination and conducting their teaching practice after the protest.
