Ibadan-Poli Students Protest Police Order to Postpone Exams

Chaos ensued as students at the Polytechnic Institute, Ibadan, protested the inability to register for the exams scheduled for Monday.

All academic and non-academic staff were prohibited from entering the campus.

When Vanguard visited the institute, all gates were closed and staff and students waited endlessly at the gate.

Vanguard understood that management had scheduled the exam for Monday, but students complained that they could not complete the registration process.

In a statement signed by the rector of the institute, Ms Modupe Favale, it is noted that “the leadership of the Polytechnic University of Ibadan has suspended the exam in the first semester of the 2019/2020 academic session, which is due to start today, Monday.”

“The exam will begin on Monday, October 19, with HND II students from the Faculty of Economics and Communication and their colleagues from the Faculty of Environmental Sciences, as scheduled.”

“Likewise, any student caught with a mobile phone and smartwatch will be suspended from classes and materials confiscated.

“Students are expected to comply with all COVID-19 protocols, including the use of masks. Those who do not comply with this will not be allowed to participate in the scheduled exam. “
