The students were protesting over the introduction of insurance and ICT fees introduced by the students’ union of the institution. The management of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, has directed students of the institution to proceed on a two-week compulsory break with immediate effect. The directive followed a protest embarked upon by students of the institution, which brought academic activities to a halt on Tuesday. In a statement issued by the institution's Registrar, Mr Hezekiah Fehintola in Ibadan on Tuesday, the directive became effective immediately and students should resume on March 13, 2016. The statement noted that "the misunderstanding between the leadership of the polytechnic and the students over students’ union policy halted the activities of the institution. "Consequently, the management has to appraise the situation. Halls of residence will be opened on Sunday, March 13, 2016, while academic activities will resume on Monday, March 14, 2016. "Parents and Guardians are directed to monitor their wards during the break,” the statement said. The students were protesting over the introduction of insurance and ICT fees introduced by the students’ union of the institution. The students accused the President of the union, Mr Tosin Esho, of being the brain behind the fees and insisted that they would not pay the fees because it had no immediate benefit to them.

Naija schools self no dey help matters,impose charges that has no benefit due to greed and selfish interest, instead of looking for a way to reduce expenses so that students can go to school in every state.
