The students of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic Owo, the Ondo state owned institution, have protested against the decision of the management of the school to prevent students who are yet to pay their schools fees from writing examinations.

The public relations officer of the polytechnic, Samuel Ojo, disclosed that the students destroyed several schools’ property and carted away with some during the protest, Channels TV reports.

The management, however, brought in some policemen to stop the protest and arrested some of the students that took part in destroying the school’s property.

Ojo said that the polytechnic has been shot down indefinitely by the management and directed all students to vacate the campus immediately.

NAIJ.com gathered that the students were supposed to commence the second semester examination for the 2016/2017 session on Monday, January 22.

A final year (HND2) student of the school who spoke on phone with Channels TV correspondent expressed sadness about the protest.

He lamented that he ought to have written his final examination since September last year and again, this protest will cause further delay for him.

NAIJ.com previously reported that hundreds of students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic ( #MAPOLY) on Monday, December 18, blocked parts of the Abeokuta metropolis in protest of the delay in commencement of their semester examinations.

The protesters were seen carrying anti-government placards, on major streets of the town, marching towards the governor’s office at Oke-Mosan.

The students' leaders also reportedly had a letter of protest they wanted to submit to the governor.

The state government and the lecturers of the institution had been having issues over the former’s conversion of the polytechnic to university status and subsequent relocation of the polytechnic to Ipokia, a border town in the state.

The lecturers had embarked on strike alleging that the state government did not follow the criteria set by the National Board of Technical Education (NBTE).
