Massive protest by the Oyo state Students’ Union (FOSSU) greeted the state on Monday, over hike on school fees, unpaid bursary, persistent strike actions by lecturers in state owned institutions.
This is the second protest in the space of two weeks.
The students’ body in an earlier release seen by Insideoyo.com had premised the reasons for the protest on the above reasons and including over-crowding of students in lecture rooms, illegal levies on students just to raise IGR for government, underfunding of all state owned institutions, including semi-privatization of state owned institutions, lack of effective teaching materials/aids in government schools, lack of conducive schools infrastructures.
As at the time of filing the report, the students were seen carrying placards and chanting solidarity song.
