Following a statement credited to the Zonal Public Relations Officer of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Mr. Olatunji Nurudeen condemning the payment of the late registration fees of regular students of Osun State Polytechnic Iree, the Management of the institution has said that it has been very lenient with the students on the payment of approved fees which have fallen due since February, 2020.
In a release made available to News Boom on Sunday, the Registrar of the institution, Mr. Busari  Salawu said the NANS statement “is jejune, frivolous and misleading.”
According to the Registrar, “it should be recalled that  the management has held series of meetings with the leadership of the Students Union on the need to pay their school fees promptly.
“More so, it is the policy of the Institution, and in the tradition of institutions globally, to impose sanctions on any student who refuses to pay his or school fees six weeks after resumption, but because we are lenient with the students, and took into account the hardships occasioned by the outbreak of Covid 19 in Nigeria in March, 2020,  we extended it till the 13th week after resumption,” the Registrar explained in the release.
He exclaimed that the Second Semester Examination of the polytechnic would begin in two weeks time “and it is devastating that majority of the students are yet to pay their school fees.
“It reeks of bad leadership that the President of the Students Union Government who is expected to show good example to other students, has also refused to pay his school fees as at now”, the Management stressed.
“It may interest the entire students that the Rector of the Institution, Dr. Woye Olaniran has held a meeting with the Zonal Executives of  NANS and members who have appreciated the management for its humane handling of the payment, noting that it was long over due.
The Polytechnic authorities  urged students to do the needful now that payment of the tuition fees has been due for 13th week of lectures and 12 months since the Session had commenced.
The Registrar noted that if it were to be other institutions of higher learning, the payment portal would have been closed and  students who  did not pay the prescribed fees would have been asked to proceed on a leave of absence.
The Management however urged members of the public to disregard any release by some people to mis-inform the public on the matter.
The Registrar disclosed that: “it may interest all stakeholders that over two thousand students have paid the late registration fee as it is the usual practice to charge such in this and other institutions in the country.”
