Civil Empowerment and Rule of Law Support Initiative (CERLSI), a rights group, has threatened to institute legal action against the Management of Auchi Polytechnic, should they fail to rescind on their decision to revoke admission of new students of the institution.
The Management of Auchi Polytechnic had earlier revoked from the school admission portal names of students who were unable to pay their acceptance fees within a stipulated time of two weeks, while those who paid outside the two weeks ultimatum were denied registration.
Deputy Executive Director of the group, Mr. Bob Majirioghene Etemiku, in a statement titled: “Payment ultimatum Slapped on Hepless Admission Seekers at The Auchi Polytechnic- An Ultimatum”, expressed disappointment over the institution’s management refusal to consider the plights of students whose admissions were revoked due to their inability to meet up the two weeks ultimatum for acceptance fee payment.
“That we are constrained by your decision to offer you a two-week ultimatum to rescind that unfortunate decision of yours.
“That we will have no other option than to institute legal action against you, at the end of the aforesaid time frame above and the Auchi Polytechnic, in furtherance of the rights of the students and their parents“, he said.
Bob said the group has decided to give the Rector and the Management of the institution a two-week periods of grace to enable him re-admit the students, threatening that failure to do so would lead to a legal action instituted against the Management of the institution.
Some students who preferred anonymity said their names were deleted from the school’s admission list portal due to their inability to pay the acceptance fees within two weeks, while those who paid outside the two weeks ultimatum were denied registration.
A student who got admitted into the Department of Estate Management on 1st November, said he made the payment of N48, 000 and above to a designated bank on the 15th of the same month but to his surprise when he later opened the portal for his registration, his name was no more on the list.

He said when he made complaint to the Department of Management Information System (MIS), he was told that he did not make his payment within the two weeks ultimatum.
