By David Adetula

Students of Obafemi Awolowo University once again demonstrated their consciousness on the poor state of the Nigerian education system as they took their protest to the streets of Ibadan, Oyo state.

Hundreds of Ife students who came in coaster buses led by the Students' Union of the institution lamented the neglect the education sector has been subiected to. In the words of the Union president, Omotayo Akande while addressing the Press in Oyo state capital, he said the rot in the education system is eating deeper.

"Our education sector has been neglected and we are saying change is here.

"Just yesterday, a section of our hostel collapsed and we were lucky not to have our students present in that part at that time.

"The hostels are old and we pay for these things, yet no improvement."

The protest which started from Iwo road saw the students trek down to NTA Ibadan from where they proceeded to NUJ Press Centre.
