Ogun State students have accused former governor Ibikunle Amosun of being responsible for the ruinous state of education in the gateway state.
The students also alleged that the former governor, now a senator representing Ogun Central at the Senate, did not pay bursary to indigenous students of the state while in office for eight years.
According to a statement issued by a faction of the National Association of Ogun State Students (NAOSS), which was jointly signed by its president and Public Relations Officer (PRO), Saka Azeez, the students faulted Amosun over academic crisis at the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), following upgrading of the polytechnic into a university status.
However, Amosun’s successor, Governor Dapo Abiodun reversed MAPOLY to status quo with its full academic activities restored.
The students, however, applauded and declared their support for the education policies of Governor Abiodun-led government which also include the planned state of emergency in the education sector.
They also demanded payment of bursary to indigenous students, disbursement of scholarship and supporting the skill acquisition programme of the association.
