The ancient city of Abeokuta, Ogun State  capital  was, yesterday,  shut down for hours when the students of polytechnics in Ogun State protested the  strike  by the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP,  and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics, SSANIP.

The students, numbering over 200, drawn from three polytechnics in Ilaro, Igbesa and Abeokuta under the  auspices of National  Association of Polytechnics  Students, Ogun State axis blocked some major roads in the ancient city.

Armed with placards with inscriptions such as: ‘Government please. don’t jeopardise our future’, ‘Government, don’t destroy polytechnics’, ‘Federal Government  please save our souls’ and ‘Our lecturers deserve the best’ among others.

The aggrieved students caused  gridlock in Panseke, Oke-Ilewo, Ibara, Kuto and Oke-Mosan.

Some travellers who were going to Abeokuta as well as those leaving the city were held up in the traffic jam for hours as the students used their school buses to block Presidential boulevard along Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta .

Attempt by the students to enter the governor’s office in Oke-Mosan was, however, unsuccessful as security men shut the gates against them. It took the intervention of policemen who persuaded the aggrieved students to free the road. Read the full article at vanguard Newspaper website from the article source below.
