Management and students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, are undergoing a silent war over the refusal of the management to conduct the Students’ Union Government election for 2016/2017 academic session.

Concerned Students alleged that the Director of Students Affairs (DSA), Seyi Shobande, attempted to impose a constitution amendment on the school’s Interim Students Representative Council (ISRC).

This accusation is contained in a petition jointly signed by ISRC of which copies have been sent to the Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly, Suraaj Adekunbi; Commissioner for Education, Modupe Mujota and the Nigeria Union of Journalists among others to use their good offices to restrain the school authorities from moving to amend the constitution unconstitutionally.

Before the petition, the school management had promised to conduct the election even if it might need to be shifted into the new semester.

Speaking on the issue the DSA, said: “All we want is a credible union leader whom we can be proud of and confident about. I am not interfering into students election, but we can only observe, we want a credible election of our students alone! Strictly MAPOLY students devoid of any external involvement.”
