Nigerian university: "No ID card, no exams"

Andrew Hudson   ||   Jun 09, 2017  ||   

The president of Nigeria's University of Ibadan Student Union is standing firm on a promise that there will be no student exams taken until university authorities have issued student ID cards to the campus community.

According to reports in the region, university officials have failed to issue the ID cards to students for three consecutive semesters, despite already receiving payment for the job.

As university administrators see it, failing to issue the cards to students leaves the campus susceptible to the myriad of standard identification and vetting dangers, but perhaps more serious is that the cards were to be used for financial aid and scholarship disbursement.

According to university officials, there are students who are supposed to receive scholarships via the campus card, but with no card issued, accessing these funds has been problematic.

Another student experienced issues receiving a stipend for a university trip from Nigeria to Boston. The student was to represent the university on an institution-funded trip and be covered by an $8,000 stipend for travel expenses. The money was disbursed by event host Hult International Business School, but the student was reportedly unable to access it without an ID card.

The university has been closed since late May following a peaceful protest by students regarding the unissued ID cards and better student welfare.
