Adekolawole made the appeal in Osogbo yesterday in a statement signed by the institution’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr Sola Lawal.

The statement was meant to refute the allegation that some of the students of the polytechnic were arrested with fake Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).

According to Adekolawole, the institution remains neutral, with extant law and regulation that restrict students from participating in partisan politics.

The statement partly reads : “The attention of the management of the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, has been drawn to series of comments trending on social media as regards the case of arrested fake voters at Alajue town in Ede South Local Government Area. This is fake and untrue much as the management of the institution believes in fundamental human rights of an individual, both staff (members) and students, in exercising their civic rights and to vote for any party of their choice; lt is pertinent to state that such a privilege would not be abused under any guise. All staff (members) and students are hereby advised to maintain decorum and refrain from any act or utterances capable of heating up the polity or tarnishing the good reputation of the institution.”

Through the statement, the rector appealed to all political parties and political gladiators to play the game according to the rules.

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, says Osun State is dying as it is paying so much on workers’ salaries without generating revenue.
Addressing newsmen in Iwo yesterday at the Engr Ademola Adedapo’s annual secondary schools’ quiz competition, Oluwo said unless the Osun civil service was overhauled, the state might find it difficult to pay salaries.
The monarch urged the state government to increase the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) to improve the fortune of the state.
He said: “We’ve a problem in Osun and we’ve to shout and tell the world that we’re sick in Osun. It’s just the truth I’m telling you. We need to upgrade and update our civil service to be IT-compliant and we’ve to create a way to find other jobs for them in the civil service.
“With what’s going on in Osun, we don’t have the money. I’m in this government and it doesn’t matter because I’m a traditional ruler. I’ve to be concerned on how government can succeed.
“We’ve so many workers for some jobs. I’m not telling them to retrench, but government should find some ways out of this situation. How much is the allocation of Osun State in a month? Can it pay the wage bill or salary? Civil servants themselves should be more creative. Civil service is the largest employer of labour in this state and the IGR is nothing. We need to create more IGR.
“Osun is dying. The state is paying so much money and not making money. People have to pay tax and there should be more ways of ensuring the payment of informal taxes. There are many incomes being generated through informal sector and is not coming to the government.”
Responding, Governor Gboyega Oyetola, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Festus Olajide, said the Oluwo had “not minced words in telling the truth.”
He said the quiz competition had brought out test and measurement in terms of performance of students in public schools.
