Traders in Oye and Ikole Ekiti have expressed concern over the closure of the two campuses of the Federal University Oye Ekiti due to its effect on their businesses.

The traders who spoke with Roundoffnews lamented that the development had subjected them to hardship due to poor patronage.

According to them, sales have been so poor because the students are their major customers adding that some of their perishable goods such as bread tomatoes etc have continued to waste on daily basis thus making them to run into depts.

Some of the traders including Bukola Ogunbiyi, Adeola Kolawole and Seun Ajikawo pleaded with authorities of the university to reopen the campuses.

“Life has not been easy since the school was closed, we now struggle so hard to even make sales, sometimes we even come to the market and return home without making anything the traders claimed.

Motorists and commerical motorcyclists are not also left out of the show as they now struggle for the little passengers available.

FUOYE was closed about a month ago by the management over a violent protest by the student which led to the death of two students as a result of shooting by police.
