Ogun State government has promised to resolve the crisis rocking the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, whose students on Monday, staged a protest over the uncertainty on the status of the institution.
During the protests, the students barricaded the Kuto/Oke-Ilewo axis of Abeokuta, for more than four hours.
One of the grievances of the students is the failure of the state government to meet the demands of the lecturers, who had been on strike for the past three months, and their possible relocation to the new polytechnic at Ipokia.
Secretary to the state government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, addressing newsmen during the protest rally of the student, said the state government will soon meet with the striking lecturers to address their complaints.
The agitation by students and the striking lecturers, according to him, will be totally settled, when the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) officially accredits the newly established Ogun State Polytechnic at Ipokia.
During the protests, the students blocked traffic flow from Panseke to Oke-Mosan, and injured a police officer with a stone, to protest the shooting of the tear gas at them, by the police patrol deployed to keep them in check.
The students did not allow the Secretary to the State Government and the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Chief Tolu Odebiyi, to address them, on behalf of Governor Ibikunle Amosun.
They promised to continue the protest for the next four days.
