The protest by the students under the Presidential Amnesty Programme of the Igbinediao University, Okada, Edo state, which started last week Friday, May 27, 2018, entered its seventh day today.
According to the protesting students, the PAP office, led by the newly appointed Coordinator of the PAP and the Presidential Adviser on Niger Delta Affairs to President Muhammadu Buhari, has still not met the demands of the students.
Multi-reliable sources among the students, who all spoke on condition of anonymity, because they have no authority to do so, told GbaramatuVoicethat they have all resolved that until their demands are met, they would continue the protest, in order to draw the attention of the Federal Government.
Among their demands, according to them were the prompt payment of their allowances, supply of laptops to all the students for both onshore and offshore training, wardrobe allowances, housing allowances and others.
The students display some placards, with different suggestive messages like, “President Buhari is insensitive to the plights of Niger Delta”, “Prof. Dokubo, stop attending burial ceremonies and pay our allowances”, etc. the students walk around the main campus of the university protesting their plight, albeit peacefully.
