MAPOLY students grounded activities at the school premises over an unprecedented delay in their examination time-table.
Movement of vehicles and commuters was on Monday put on hold around major areas of Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital as students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) embarked on a protest.
The students of the Ogun State-owned institution are protesting the delay of their semester examination, demanding the immediate resolution to the impasse on the inability of the students to have the examination.
Dressed in black attires, the students holding different placards matched through major streets of Abeokuta. They demand an immediate action by government to have their institution reopened for normal academic activities.
The students also demand the commencement of their semester examination after they have stayed at home for three months.
“We suppose to have written our examination on September 18 but ASUP MAPOLY 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 students who spoke with Channels Television said.
There had earlier been a faceoff between the state government and members of the Academic Staff Union Polytechnics (ASUP) of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic chapter which has led to an industrial action that has paralysed academic activities in the institution for three months.
The disagreement between the state government and lecturers of the institution is reported to be due to the relocation of the institution to Ipokia in Ogun State and it has remained unsolved.
