Angry LAUTECH Students Prevent UTME Candidates From Writing Exams
Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH students prevented JAMB candidates from entering university premises.
Students of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Oyo state, has on Monday morning, May 15, prevented candidates who were posted to the school to write the 2017 UTME from entering the premises of the institution to write their exams.
According to the Nigerian Tribune, the students had mobilised themselves as early as6.00 a.m. for the action, and stationed themselves in teams across all entrances into the institution.
The LAUTECH students have insisted that the gates would remain shut until a resolution is reached between the aggrieved lecturers and management to the effect that lecturers would resume in the next 48 hours.
Furthermore, the grouse of the students is that the fate of current students is yet to be resolved while another set of students are to be admitted.
The students said the action was taken to alert the world to the problems facing the school after the two owner states, Oyo and Osun, ignored every plea to address the problems.
