“This is to inform students especially final year students ND 2 and HND 2 that the Polytechnic Governing Council has approved MICROSOFT CERTIFICATE PROGRAMME for all final year students of the institution. The programme which is meant to increase students proficiency in computer Application, Marketability after graduation, is compulsory for all final year students and registration is seven thousand ( 7000 ) Naira per session.

Sources also say the students protest was triggered by unnecessary increament in fees which is becoming a thing with the institution and the increase at the rate students get carry over that they had to pay remedial fees to rewrite. Hostel accomodation provided by the school which used to be 20,000 Naira per session was earlier increased to 40,000. Students bus fare fees which used to be 50 Naira per trip was increased to 80 Naira.
