Students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Monday, are currently protesting the hike in the acceptance fee paid by newly admitted students among other issues.

The students, who gathered enmass at the campus gate as early as 7am were seen in their numbers holding placards with inscriptions such as #No To Increment of Tution Fee, #Rector Must Go, #Release our Result ASAP among others.

Men of the Nigeria Police Force were also present at the scene.

It was gathered that among the issues affecting the students included delay in release of result, shortage of staff and increment in the acceptance fee for fresh students.

The Public Relations Officer of the institution, “Yemi Ajibola, said that the students did not inform the school of their grievances which makes it difficult for such grievances to be addressed.

“The management is not aware of their grievances because they did not inform us of any reason why they are protesting. The management needs to be informed of what their grievances are for the management to be able to sit and deliberate on it. If they channel their grievances appropriately, it will be attended to,” Ajibola concluded.
