The National Association of Ogun State Students (NAOSS) on Wednesday gave the Ogun State government a 72-hour ultimatum to shutdown the Royal Institute of Technology in Ifo area of the State for allegedly violating the Federal and Ogun State governments’ order on the closure of schools.
NAOSS in a statement by its National President, Comrade Gbemileke Ogunronmbi in Abeokuta, also called for the arrest of the proprietor of the school.
“It has been brought to our notice that upon the order of the Federal and the Ogun State governments and that all religion gatherings and schools in Nigeria should be on lockdown some charlatans who because of personal greed and selfish interest went ahead going about their personal businesses.
“Such is the case of the owner of the Royal Institute of Technology, Ifo who went ahead posting students for Siwes across Ogun State.
“It is obvious that such person is no doubt an enemy of the State and a violator of the Federal government’s directives its unbelievable that some people can be so inhuman to expose Nigerian students to havoc during this corona pandemic period.
“The National leadership of the National Association of Ogun State hereby call for the immediate arrest of the said School owner.
“We also give a 72-hour ultimatum for him to halt the school educational operations and call back all students on Siwes.
“We will not hesitate to stage a protest and shut down the said institution because an injury to one is an injury to all.
“The proprietor’s inhumane and has triggered the anger of Nigerian students because it is really annoying that in this period of pandemic when even health practitioners are prone to contacting the virus easily, an health institute can go to the extent of exposing our students to such health havoc.
“NAOSS will not look away from this and the management of the said institution should be ready to face the wrath of Nigerian students.”
