Covenant University has suspended over 200 students for missing its just concluded Easter ‘Youth Alive’ programme.

According to Punch the students were placed on compulsory suspension for not being part of the retreat.

“We were going for the services in the morning and night and people were getting tired of it because we were also preparing for exams. So, the Vice- Chancellor got angry and ordered that those who missed the services be sanctioned," a 400 Level student said.

“Some were suspended for four weeks and those who had missed eight services for the four days got a year.”

A 300-level student added that some of them have been prevented from sitting for exams and they had no means of protesting the sanctions, which he said was ‘unfair.

“The mood in school is really tensed. Though students are not protesting but they are angry because you are preparing for an exam you’re not sure you will sit for, until the paper starts.

“They stopped me from sitting for a paper last week because I did not go for a service and I don’t know if I will be allowed in today either.”

The school management is yet to address the issue.
