Prospective candidates of the 2017 UTME posted to Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso on Monday, May 15 were stopped from entering the premises or gaining access to the examination centres by the Institution’s students. This caused a lot of buzz as people wondered what might have led to such an action.

Well, the LAUTECH students said the action was taken to alert the world to the problems facing the school after the two owner states, Oyo and Osun, ignored every plea to address the problems.

The students also prevented teaching and non teaching staff of the institution from entering the school.

The gates were locked after students leaders held a congress by 5am and resolved that the school will be lockeddown and no Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination will hold until their demands are met.

The demands include, a comprehensive academic calendar, commencement of lectures and a permanent resolution of the crisis in the institution. Unless the demands are met, the student leaders said they will continue to protest and ensure a total lockdown of the institution.
