1,000 poly students threaten court action over non-release of results two years after graduation


Over 1,000 former students of the Adesun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa in Oyo State, on Sunday, threatened to sue the management of the institution for allegedly delaying their results two years after they graduated.

The students said that the need to approach a court of law was necessary due to the non-release of their results, two years after they graduated from the institution.

One of the affected students, who spoke on behalf of over 1,000 students that were affected, Onubi Samuel Everest, said he was subjected to several panels by the management of the institution while his course of study lasted.

He described the action of the institution to delay their results as a deliberate ploy to deny them a future as years spent on campus had ended in waste.

The students alleged that the institution admitted them when they knew there was no accreditation for their courses.

Everest said many parents of the affected students were still in shock of what could have led to non-existent of results of their children, after completing their studies.

He said; “The whole problem started two years ago when the former Oyo state governor, Abiola Ajimobi considered the Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa for autonomy.

“The management admitted us for High National Diploma knowing that many of their courses were not accredited.

“The school told us that National Board for Technical Education and the management of the institution had agreed on accreditation before the completion of our first session but it was a lie.

“Management advertised sales of its forms and we were lured into it. We purchased the forms and started the programme but they later told us after completion of our programmes that we were admitted in error.

“We are more than 1,000 students from five departments. The most annoying thing about it is that we have not had any information from the management since we have completed our programmes, two years ago.”

The Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr. Gbenga Olayiwola confirmed the matter.

Olayiwola while reacting, said the state government had taken over the matter.

He said “The state government has set up a panel of inquiry to look into the matter and their findings would be made known soon.

Ihedioha will not last as governor – Okorocha declares


Former governor of Imo State and now Senator of the Federal Republic
of Nigeria, Senator Rochas Okorocha has declared that his successor, Governor Emeka Ihedioha will not last as governor.

The Senator Imo West Senatorial district at the 9th Nigerian Senate, made this pronouncement recently while addressing a group of supporters in Imo State.
In a video presently circulating on social media, the Senator declared that Governor Ihedioha will not last as governor of the state saying that since he resumed office, it has been Rochas this, Rochas that. Asking his listeners ”Is Rochas his job?
The former governor who addressed the audience in the native dialect, Igbo hailed the people saying, My people, my people, to which they responded, Our governor, our governor, as he continued saying ”When I came here yesterday, everywhere was quiet, I told them all to be careful, I told Emeka and his people to be careful. Emeka did not win the election, if not for Nigeria, Emeka should not be governor.
”He didn’t win by number of votes, he didn’t win by the number of local governments required by the constitution. Instead he is busy fighting and making trouble with me. And his government will not last, these few months he has to lead and make impact. He has refused, and what is he doing? He is chasing Rochas. In the morning Rochas, In the afternoon, Rochas, is Rochas his job?” to which the people burst into laughter.
The duo have been locked in continued verbal and media war ever since the 2019 elections were held and continue to appear never to see eye to eye.

Flying Eagles qualify for semi finals of 12th African Games

Nigeria’s U20 boys, Flying Eagles, qualified for the semifinals of the men’s football event of the 12th African Games after a hard fought 2-2 draw with hosts Morocco on Friday evening at the FAR Sports Complex Rabat.

The result meant the Flying Eagles garnered five points from three games behind Burkina Faso who topped the group, and ahead of Morocco and South Africa.

The Flying Eagles fell behind after Morocco profited from some slack defending to allow Mohsinne Abba to head home the opener in the 12th minute.

Morroco looked the better side for much of the first half but Nigeria came back strongly towards the close of the first period and were duly rewarded when Ahmad Ghali was brought down in the box.

Team captain Ibrahim Abubakar stepped forwarded and slotted home the spot kick at the second time of asking, after the Moroccan goalkeeper saved his initial effort.

The first half ended 1-1 but Morocco were soon back in the saddle from another spot kick as the referee ruled that Habibu Yakubu had handled in the box.

The hosts scored to lead 2-1 after 72 minutes as Nigeria faced elimination.

Coach Paul Aigbogun threw on lanky striker Chinonso Emeka and it proved a good decision, as the striker scored with just a minute left of regulation time to put Nigeria through to the last four.
