Published

on

The Ibarapa Polytechnic Students’ Union Government (SUG)  on Wednesday frowned at what it described as an unjust harassment of one of  the institution’s female students identified as Olufunke (Surname withheld) of HND I, Mass Communication Department by Dr Adegbenjo Adewale Oladapo, a lecturer in the department of  mechanical engineering.

Oladapo, who is said to also chairs  the ASUP union of the school, was said to have slapped the female student over an alleged ‘Immoral Dressing. The Students’ Union, however dismissed the lecturer’s claim, describing it as baseless and untrue.

 

Also, the SUG has given a three-day ultimatum to the lecturer to tender unreserved apology to the assaulted student .

The SUG, in a press statement jointly signed by its  President, Comrade Ashaolu Victor Samuel and  Comrade Abdulrauf Abdulazeez ( Public Relations Officer) on Wednesday in Eruwa and made available to Mega Icon Magazine reads in part, “as a matter of fact, the whole students populace have expressed their annoyance at this development, bringing up complaints of same nature about same Dr Adegbenjo Adewale Oladapo in times past. Consequently, we specifically establish that such action of Dr Adegbenjo is illegal, unjust and unbecoming of man of his cadre.

“Apparently, the leadership of the SUG stands to express our displeasure and dismay on the issue as it is a big slap on our face. We firmly demand Dr Adegbenjo Adewale Oladapo, ASUP Chairman, Lecturer in Mechanical Department to publicly make unreserved apology to the assaulted student of HND 1, Mass Communication Department within 3 days of this message”.

Confirming the development through a telephone conversation, Oketayo said the Students protested on Monday at the Acting Rector’s office but he later saw the news on the social media platform yesterday’s evening.

Oketayo, however maintained that he has not been briefed  about the matter.

Hon. Akande -Sadipe

The Federal lawmaker representing Oluyole Federal Constituency and Chairperson House of Representative Committee on Diaspora, Hon. Tolu Akande-Sadipe has paid the second tranche of her 25-million naira TASK scholarship.

This payment is the second tranche of the year 2019/2020 session for twenty (20) indigent students drawn from communities across the federal Constituency.

Hon. Akande-Sadipe in a bid to fulfil her campaign promises launched the N25 Million Naira scholarship immediately after her election to the 9th Assembly.

According to a statement signed by her Media aide, Olamilekan Olusada, the lawmaker affirmed that the beneficiaries were selected on merit and each student was graded with a cumulative average of their academic standings and entry essay.

Recall that December, 2019, Hon. Akande – Sadipe flagged off the N25 Million Naira scholarship scheme at her constituency office, where the first set of beneficiaries were awarded dummy cheques.

Sadipe disclosed that payments to beneficiaries were deposited to each recipient’s bank account which covers the balance of their tuition fee and incidental expenses for the 2019/2020 academic year.

In addition to this, she has also initiated steps to commence the request for applications for new set of beneficiaries for the 2020/2021 academic year.

“The reason I believe so passionately in providing opportunities such as this, is that education has the potential to transform our nation, thereby creating progress and growth. Every citizen is a pillar of the nation and every nation rests on billions of such pillars. The more educated the pillars are, the stronger the nation’s foundation would be.

My sincere appreciation and gratitude goes to Honourable Tolulope Akande Sadipe K for fulfilling her promise she made when she awarded us scholarship worth #100,000 on Dec 1, 2019, I have received the #100,000 for the first year of the scholarship scheme.”

“I was surprised when I saw the credit alert on the phone because I don’t believe it, I’m short of words but I pray May Almighty Allah in HIS mercy Continue to be with you throughout your days And May He make you Continue in fulfilling all the promises that you made during your campaign. Once again, I really appreciate your efforts Ma. God Bless you and your crew”.
