The management of Cross River University of Technology (CRUTECH) has ignored the proclamation of the State Governor, Sen. Ben Ayade to suspend payment of school fee by indigenes in the institution.
Governor Ayade made the proclamation to that effect October last year, during a press briefing where he maintained that the suspension of fee payment by indigenes is till further notice.
Arising from its 53rd emergency meeting, CRUTECH management issued circular No. 315. The circular dated January 21, 2021 (same day the emergency meeting held) directed students and parents as well as guardians to take note that, no one will be allowed to take exams without paying school fee.
It is unclear as at press time if the Governor after making the proclamation wrote to the school for implementation and if the “No Fee No Exams” policy is for old students already owing the school or neophyte inclusive.
