Dozens of students at the Adeyemi College of Education in Ondo, Ondo State, mounted a protest on Friday protesting the lack of basic electric power and other amenities on campus.
The demonstrators, who stopped the college’s main gate as well as the Ondo-Ore Expressway, said that the institution’s management was oblivious to their predicament.
During the protest, there was considerable traffic on the busy freeway for several hours.
Despite the expensive charge they were paying, they claimed that the management neglected to provide them with water and electricity.
The students demonstrated their dissatisfaction by carrying empty buckets and chanting various solidarity songs.
One of the demonstrators, Sola, simply stated that the administration had failed in its duties and that the demonstration would continue until the school did the necessary.
“We are paying the school for all these and yet we are lacking amenities, no water, no electricity, to study is very difficult. So the school should attend to our request unless the protest would continue.”
When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mrs Seto Olatuyi, said the management would attend to the demands of the students.
“Management is working on the issues raised,” she stated.
