Polytechnic Ibadan explains reasons for delay in students’ resumption

1 min


The management of The Polytechnic Ibadan on Friday revealed why its students are yet to resume.

DAILY POST recalls that the students who were asked to proceed on compulsory mid-semester break as a result of a violent football match were expected to resume on Wednesday April 10.

But, the institution is yet to ask the students to resume.

While explaining the reasons, it said that erratic supply of electricity on campus was the major factor.

The institution in a statement signed by its Registrar, Mrs. Modupe Fawale, made available to DAILY POST on Friday, also assured stakeholders in the institution, particularly students and their parents that the institution will soon reopen for students’ activities.

Fawale said “The student who were given a mid semester break on 4th April,2019 and billed to resume on 10th April could not do so because The Management was fine tuning the logistics for their resumption.

“The Management observed that there has not been electricity supply by IBDEC due to major electrical fault to the institution in the last three weeks which virtually makes resumption difficult as the institution cannot perpetually rely on diesel generated electricity which in all ramifications will not provide sufficient electricity supply for the students

“The Management further observed that since the students would commence their First Semester examination almost immediately on resumption, every logistic to ensure their smooth stay has to be put in place.

“However, students are still expected to stay away from the institution until the management directs their resumption.

“Any violence or protest engineered by any group purporting to be students or interest groups within the institution will not be tolerated as those arrested by police will be prosecuted , the statement added.

“The statement appealed to parents and guardians to monitor the activities of their children and wards as the authority of the institution will not be liable for any action of the students while on this mid semester break”.
