ABOUT 1,000 students of the Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa Oyo State have threatened court action against the management of the institution for their alleged non-accreditation of courses they studied in school.
He said: “The management admitted us for Higher National Diploma (HND) knowing that many of their courses were not accredited. They told us that National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) and the management of the institution had agreed on accreditation before the completion of our first session but it was a lie.” “Management advertised sales of its forms and we were lured into it. We purchased the forms and started the programme but they later told us after completion of our programmes that we were admitted in error.” “We are more than 1,000 students from five departments. The most annoying thing about it is that we have not had any information from the management since we completed our programmes two years ago.”
Mr Gbenga Olayiwola, the Public Relation officer of the institution has reacted to the allegation saying the government has set a panel who will see to it.
