edorrespondent who visited the institution on Monday observed that all the gates in the institution were shut down.

The general meeting of the academic and non-academic staff of the institution convened by a Joint committee of all Staff Unions said the governing council and the Oyo State government have repeatedly refused to implement the minimum wage for workers in the citadel of learning.

Chairman, Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP), Comrade Abiodun Abegunde, noted that the issue must be fought to a logical conclusion.
