Somebody has to stand up while others are sitting; somebody as to speak while others are quiet
As it is generally known that our dear Alma mater Ogun State Institute of Technology Igbesa is sorrounded with copious companies and that are operating 24 hours.
As students leaders we had expressed our grievances and draft out our demands through letters hereby sending them to the companies arround us countless times, but even uptil date none of our request and demand had been attend to.
We lack so many social amenities and we have several companies arround our school enviroments yet they are not contributing to the growth of our institute as expected.
Like cause always produce like effect. In kind, we always reap what we sow; but quantitatively, we always reap much more than we sow
Now is the time to break the silence , our students aren’t happy with the situation of things and they all had immersed there hopes on us.
The students of Ogun State Institute of Technology Igbesa wants so many things to be done but as students leaders we had mapped out the scale of preference and the needs are as follows:
👉 Hostel for students: there’s always hike in the price of the house rents that are being occupied by our students arround the school enviroments. Our students always comply because they don’t have a choice, if there’s an official student hostel or lodge the CDA would definitely reach a concession and reduce the price of the house rent.
👉 Job opportunities: even at the expense that we have several multi billionaire companies arround us , our graduating students and still find it difficult to be employed. So many graduated from our dear alma mater with good grades but yet they end up becoming motor cyclist to earn a living.
So many of our IT students can’t even come back for there HND as a result of financial instability, if there’s provision of job opportunities the rate of unemployment would reduce in Agbara/Lusada/Igbesa Axis.
👉 Scholarship :we can boast of series of distinction students who also possess skills in there area of specialization and would impact positively to the labour market if given the opportunity to.
We also demand that scholarship should be given to our best students from each faculties so as to motivate them to do more and encourage other students to put more effort to there academics.
👉 Facilities; We want the factories to provide us medical facilities, laboratories equipment to aid learning and increase practical skills for science students.
👉 lecture hall for each faculty: the number of students who get admitted keep increasing yearly. We need more classes and halls for each faculty so that our students can learn and acquire education with ease.
👉 10 students shuttle: our students risked there lives everyday by taking motorcycles to school everyday day. We need shuttle so that every student can go to school with ease and also bring about the reduction of accident arround our alma mater.
After series of consultation and consolidation ,we are left with no choice than to use our last C.
A protest was scheduled to hold Saturday 7th of October 2020 but due to calls from series of security operatives the protest was duly postponed.
We had carefully highlight and itemize our demands and we give all the factories arround an ultimatum of 72 hours to meet our demands else we would shut down the companies and no factory truck would access the igbesa lusada road untill our demands are been attend too.
*Until are free , no one is free*
