Students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, poured to the streets of Abeokuta Tuesday, to protest the closure of their school, which has been under lock for nearly three months. The protest left one student slumping and a police officer injured.
The students who were angry for the delay in their second-semester examination which supposed to commence on September 18, disrupted the movement of vehicles and commuters in the state capital, Abeokuta. The protesting students, carrying anti-government placards, demanded an immediate reopening of their school by the state government.
“We suppose to have written our examination on September 18 but MAPOLY’s ASUP used that as a negotiation tool with Ogun State Government. As it is today, for the past three months, we have not been able to write the examination and there is no green light if we are going to write the examination, this year,” one of the protesting students told journalists.
Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, MAPOLY academic staff and the state government have been having issues with the upgrade of the polytechnic to a university status.
