Osun Poly Students Continue Suspended Examination



Students of Osun State Polytechnic Iree on Tuesday continued their First Semester Examination for 2022/2023 Session as directed by Osun State Government through the Chairman of the Institution’s Governing Council, Hon. Diran Ayanbeku.

A visit by News men to the campus of the institution on Tuesday revealed that, the students were seen writing their examination without any hitch.

Some staff of the institution who were invigilators and Supervisors were seen conducting the examination in orderly manners in various examination halls.

The Governing Council through a statement issued by the Acting Registrar, Mr Abiodun Oloyede on Monday had directed staffers of the Polytechnic to ensure that members of staff return to their duty posts for their academic and administrative duties.

It would be recalled that staffers of the polytechnic, three weeks ago embarked on industrial strike protesting the suspension of the Polytechnic Rector, Dr Tajudeen Odetayo by the State Government for alleged financial improprieties and abuse of office which made the State Government to set up a Panel of Enquiry, currently investigating the allegations.
Some of the students who spoke with our correspondent appealed to the few aggrieved lecturers to settle their grievances with the government so that their industrial protest would not further affect their lives.

The students also appealed to the government to ensure that the investigation should be done speedily so that justice could prevail.
While speaking, the Acting Registrar of the Institution, Mr. Abiodun Oloyede who expressed his happiness for the success of the examination commended the staffers for their selfless service, saying it was good of them to heed the directive of the government to conduct the examination.
