Rivers College Of Health Shuts Down College, Orders Students To Go Home



Daily Post reports that the Management of Rivers State College of Health Science and Management Technology Port Harcourt has directed all the students of the institution to vacate the college premises until further notice.

According to the management, the students have until 4pm on Saturday to comply with the directive.

The order follows the refusal of the students who have been protesting over lack of basic amenities in the college, to open the gate of the institution since they started their protest on Tuesday.

The Provost of the College, Professor Franklin Nlerum who confirmed the development said directive is to forestall the breakdown of law and order in the case of any further protest.

According to him ” the students have refused any appeal by the management of the college to get back to their class rooms”.

“They made initial request that they do not have water and light but management has restored light and water to the campus”. We do not understand what they are still looking for”.

“Since they have refused to listen to the request of management to come back to the class rooms and let things be done normally. So management felt that there is no need to make trouble with them and especially since they have also threatened that from next week they will be on the road and management does not want any student to he hurt because we know that hoodlums may hijack that”.

“That is why we have said they can go home for now while management is meeting and discussing how to address the agitations”.
