There is an ongoing protest by students of the Federal College of Agriculture, Moor Plantation, Apata, Ibadan over the non-accreditation of some of the institution’s courses.

Though the protest is still peaceful, OYO INSIGHT learnt that the examination which is supposed to begin today has been boycotted.

Only yesterday, the Oyo State Joint Campus Council of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, raises an alarm that the management of the institution has  as plan  to proscribe the Students’ Union Government for rightly demanding that the management accredits courses before the   commencement of 2nd Semester  examination  on  Monday 29th, April, 2019.


NANS chairman, Asubiojo Olujuwon, had in a press statement, revealed that “The Students Union Government has written series of  letters to the management to remind them of the need for accreditation before examination, these reasons include  the well known fact that without accreditation of courses, HND students will not be mobilized for service and ND students will not be eligible to further their educational pursuit by Direct Entry.

“NANS Oyo State wishes to remind the general public and concerned stakeholders that it is the same accreditation issue that led to the inability of  students of Ibarapa Polytechnic who graduated in 2017 to proceed for the mandatory National Youth Service, hence,  the lock down of the institution on Wednesday April 24th, 2019.

“NANS, Oyo State therefore joins the call for  accreditation before examination and seriously warns the management against proscribing the union as  they will have the thousands of Nigerian Students in Oyo State to contend with if they do.”
