MAPOLY students shut down school over exam results

Students of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), Abeokuta, on Monday locked the school’s main gate while protesting the non-release of their examination results.

The HND students in the protest lamented that results of the exams concluded in January had not yet been released, hindering them from being mobilised for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in April.

PUNCH reports that both academic and non-academic staff have been denied access to the compound.

In December, 20 students of the institution were arrested by operatives of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) while protesting the delay of their second semester examination.

The students allegedly destroyed public property, attacked policemen and passersby while protesting.

The delay was as a result of the industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union Polytechnics (ASUP) of MAPOLY over the relocation of the institution to Ipokia, Ogun state.

The industrial action which crippled academic activities in the institution for three months was suspended in January.
