The management of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) has informed students and lecturers about the resumption of the second-semester examinations despite agitations from students over an increment in fees and other unfriendly policies.
Students under the auspices of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Ogun state chapter, earlier today staged a protest demanding that the management reverse the increments of some fees, and also the newly introduced #10,000 registration fee.
Not moved by this action, the management in a statement signed by the Head, Public Relations and Protocol, Yemi Ajibola, tagged the students’ action as an ‘invasion’ and disclosed that the second-semester examination would continue on Wednesday, October 19, 2022.
