The students of Auchi Polytechnic in Edo-State carried out a peaceful protest over programme extension in Auchi today.
The students protested plans by the school authority to extend the years of the normal academy calendar from three to four years, for both National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND)
One of the Students, who pleaded anonymity said, some people are behind the issue of not allowing the students to graduate at the appropriate time because of their selfish interest.
He said “…we will not allow them to spoil our own with their own, especially now that we are trying to revamp the school back to her position of being the best polytechnic in Africa…”
He therefore, pleaded that the general public should help them to echo their voices in order to restore the image of the school tarnished by bad eggs.
