Over one thousand ex-students of the Adesun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa, Oyo state, on Sunday threatened to sue the institution’s management for allegedly dellaying their statements of result two years after graduating from the school.
The students made it known that the need to approach a court of law was necessary due to the delay of their results, two years after they graduated from the polytechnic, adding that some of them were subjected to several panels by the management while their programmes lasted.
Onubi Samuel Everest, one of the affected students, decribed the action of the institution to delay their results as a deliberate ploy to deny them a future as years spent on campus had ended in waste.
“The whole problem started two years ago when the former Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, considered the Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa for autonomy. The management admitted us for High National Diploma knowing that many of their courses were not accredited.
“The school told us that the National Board for Technical Education and the management of the institution had agreed on accreditation before the completion of our first session but it was a lie. The management advertised sales of its forms and we were lured into it. We purchased the forms and started the programme but they later told us after completion of our programmes that we were admitted in error.
“We are more than a thousand students from five departments. The most annoying thing about it is that we have not had any information from the management since we have completed our programmes, two years ago,” Everest stated.
The Public Relations Officer of the polytechnic, Mr. Gbenga Olayiwola, who confirmed the matter, stated that the state government had taken over the matter.
“The state government has set up a panel of inquiry to look into the matter and their findings would be made known soon,” he said.
