The National Association Of Polytechnic Students have expressed displeasure at the management of the Federal Polytechnic, Ede over what the association termed as a joke taken too far.
This was contained in a press statement obtained by Focus Naija and signed by Comrade Mohammed Eneji, the President Of the National Association Of Polytechnic Students.
According To Comr Mohammed Eneji, ASUP as a sister union to SUG are supposed to work in synergy to the betterment of both students and lecturers affairs, instead of the former victimizing the later.
“We want to set the record straight that SUG and ASUP of an Institution are suppose to be sister Unions who are to work hand in hand towards a better learning environment for both lecturers and students, but it is becoming the reverse this days taking examples from some Polytechnics in the recent, e.g Federal Polytechnic, Bida and Federal Polytechnic, Ekowe among many.
“Consequent upon the above, ASUP Ede is hereby warned to desist from this act and comply with decision taken by the management on this matter or be ready to be on a logger head with the students community.
“NAPS want to urge the students of Federal Polytechnic Ede to be calm as we are aware that their Exams which is supposed to commence today has been shifted to Wednesday because of the Lecturers refusal to conduct the examination. NAPS is on top of the situation as justice must prevail at the end of the day.
Comrade Mohammed Eneji”
Recall That, The Constant call for the suspension of SUG President of the Federal Polytechnic, Ede Rufai Lukman Opeyemi SIWES by the ASUP of the Polytechnic is laughable.
The President averted a potential crisis that would have befallen the Polytechnic when a Lecturer’s vehicle parked in front of the SUG Office caused an accident which led to two students sustaining injuries. These sparked the anger of students who wanted to burn down the vehicle, but the SUG President decided to deflate the tyres as an alternative to calm the angry students down. The lecturer felt offended and reported to ASUP, the matter was referred to students disciplinary committee and the committee gave recommendation to the management which gave birth to the letter attached in the pictures below. The President was warned and this didn’t go down well with ASUP.
