The management of the Polytechnic Ibadan in Oyo State said on Wednesday that it has shifted the 2019/2020 first semester examination of the institution.

Saga Gist gathered that this is the second time the institution will postpone the examination.

Our correspondent recalls that the institution had on Monday shifted the first-semester examination which was billed to commence on Monday (12/10/2020) to Monday, 19/10/2020).

The postponement was done after students protested their inability to pay fees and register their courses online.

The institution noted that it has reviewed its stand on the commencement of the first-semester examination for the 2019/2020 academic session earlier postponed to Monday 19th October 2020.

It added that under the reviewed arrangement, the examination will now commence on Monday, 2nd November 2020.

The Registrar of the institution, Mrs Modupe Theresa Fawale said that all the contentious issues with the students’ union which led to the earlier postponement and closure of the institution have been resolved.

Fawale in the statement on Wednesday insisted that the management in a closed-door meeting with the students’ union Executives and Representatives from the various faculties, considered the pleas from the students for more time for the payment of tuition and registration for the session.

She added that the inability of some of the students to access the institution’s portal was also addressed as the solution centres created by the Management are already resolving some of the issues of registration.
