They accused the rector of embezzling N350 million unremitted cooperative funds and perpetrating illegal pension deductions from contract staff benefits in brazen disregard to the polytechnic’s financial regulation

But the rector has accused the workers of nursing a hidden agenda, asking them to wait for the report of an independent panel set up to investigate the allegation.

The aggrieved workers who started the protest as early at about 7am, blocked the main entrance of the institution and prevented staff and students from gaining entry into the institution.
