Students under the auspices of the National Association of Ondo State Students, on Monday, blocked several roads in Akure, the state capital, to protest against the non-payment of their bursary allowance.
The students alleged that the state government had not paid them the allowance for the past three years, which, according to them, has accumulated into several millions of naira. The protesters, led by the President of the association, Mr. Charles Iwakun, blocked the popular Oba Adesida and Oyemekun roads and some others in the state, causing traffic for several hours.

The students, who chanted anti-government songs, also carried placards with inscriptions such as: “Governor, pay our money”, “Bursary is our right, not a privilege”, and “It is time to pay our bursary”, among others. Iwakun, while decrying the alleged insensitivity of the state government, noted that students too were stakeholders in the development of the society.

He said, “We are out today (Monday) protesting because the Ondo State Government has refused to pay our bursary since 2014.” The state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Kayode Akinmade, advised the students to show understanding, attributing the non-payment of the bursary to the dwindling economic situation of the country. He promised that the state would endeavour to seek solution to their request.
