It’s no longer news that Ladoke Akintola University of Technology has been on shutdown since more than eight months now. Yesterday, the
frustrated students of the Oyo State based institution took their protest to the Oyo State Govt House. But even as the Governor
attempted explaining things to the students, the shouted him down and booed him.
“Your management, the Oya State government, and other governments, they don’t have money”, the governor could be heard
saying amidst the noisy students. But when the students continued to boo him, he couldn’t take it anymore. So he shouted back.
“This isn’t the first time a university will be closed for 8 months. If you want violence, I’m ready,”
Gov. Ajimobi dared the irate students.
This is, indeed, a terrible situation for these students who have spent all these months at home, wasting away, and there’s still no
hope for them. Alutanews joins her voice in demanding that the government of Oyo State should do more than just giving excuses, and
save these students from wasted years.
