Protesting the increase in hostel refusal fee, students at The Polytechnic, Ibadan took to the streets on Monday to voice their opposition.
As a result of their demonstration, the Management of the institution announced the suspension of the Students’ Union and postponed the first semester examinations scheduled for that day.
According to Mrs Modupe Fawale, Registrar of The Polytechnic Ibadan, it was established that tuition fees had not been raised for several years and payment could be made in two installments.
Furthermore, such disruption to academic activities as experienced today is ill-advised and politically motivated.
Currently, the Management is reviewing the situation with hopes to announce soon when exams are to resume.
They have asked students to return to class and prepare for tests and called upon parents/guardians to remind their wards about their responsibilities.
