Following Tuesday’s violence during the Students’ Union Government election, the authorities of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, has expelled 14 students from the institution.

Protesting students allegedly destroyed school property while protesting against alleged interference in the SUG election by the MAPOLY  authorities.

But the school, in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, Sulaimon Adebiyi, on Wednesday, said the decision to expel the students became imperative following the disruption of the election.

The statement read in part, “The management of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta has proscribed the Students’ Union of the polytechnic.

“This development became imperative following the disruption of the students’ union election on September 18, 2012 on the campus of the polytechnic, which led to the cancellation of the election by the Students’ Union Electoral Commission,  which was endorsed by the management.

“While assuring parents and students of peace on campus,  management   hereby affirms  that the second semester examination shall commence as scheduled on September 24.”

The statement said the expelled students were from the departments of Accountancy, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

Others are from the departments of Mass Communication, Civil Engineering, Estate Management, Computer Science, Hospitality and Tourism as well as Electrical/Electronic Engineering.

The school authorities therefore advised the expelled students to steer clear of the polytechnic.
