The management of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, Oyo State has lifted the suspension order that was earlier slammed against the institution’s Student Union Government.
A statement from the Registrar, Modupe Fawale, said the reversal of the decision was based on interventions to allow for further consultation.
the punch had reported that students protested the administration’s increase in the hostel’s refusal fee.
Students, by the hundreds, blocked the school gate and the ever-crowded Sango-Poly junction, thus causing a traffic jam before proceeding to the State Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan. All roads within the Secretariat were also blocked.
However, the management said that they had decided not to use the club on the students because they had also sheathed their sword.
“Management will hold meetings with student leaders to address their perceived grievances.
“However, the first semester exams scheduled to start today (Monday) are still postponed. A new date for the start of the exam will be announced to students through the appropriate channels,” the statement added.
