Students of Plateau State Polytechnic have staged a peaceful protest over the postponement of their semester examinations by the school authorities.
The students trooped out in large numbers and blocked the Yakubu Gowon way, a major highway leading into and out of Jos.
The postponement of the examination was as a result of an indefinite strike embarked upon by lecturers of the institution who had issued a notice of strike to the government over what they called the government’s inability to meet their demands of earned allowances and other sundry issues.
Speaking to journalists, a student of the institution, Deborah John, described the decision of the management to postpone the examination as an attempt to truncate their academic journey.
Another student, Isreal Longdu, decried the incessant strike by their lecturers, adding that the development has stagnated their academic progression.
When contacted, a member of staff of the Public Relations Department of the institution, John Ramadan promised to furnish journalists with details on the strike soon.
