ABEOKUTA—The management of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, yesterday, said it had not asked its final year medical students to pay extra tuition because of any strike.

In a statement  by the Head, Corporate Affairs Division, Mr.Niyi Oduwole in Abeokuta, the management explained that  the extension of period of medical students in the clinical school due to strike in the teaching hospital by doctors and other ancillary medical personnel necessitated the request for payment by the students.

The medical  students  of the  institution had  accused the management of the institution of  calling the bluff of  the Ogun State House of Assembly over its  directive  to over stay action on the collection of the alleged extra  fee from  the students.

The management said: “To set the records straight, no student and including our medical students were ever directed to pay extra tuition due to any strike in the university.
“However, extension of period of study of medical students in the clinical school due to strike in the teaching hospital by doctors and other ancillary medical personnel may occur.”
