Poor condition of health facilities at Sokoto State Polytechnic triggered peaceful protest by students yesterday.
The earlier tension at the School Clinic followed the death of a 100 level student who passed on after a brief illness as the medical team could not squarely address his issues on time.
Muyideen Salawu, died at Private Clinic, Sokoto because the School medical team could not adequately examine his health condition at the time of filling this report.
Immediately after the news of his death, the students raised the alarm over poor health facillities in the hospital and tasked the authorities to do something to salvage the health facility in the school. While the protest was going on, there was immediate deployment of security and guards to douse tension.
In a swift reaction, the Rector of the Polytechnic, Prof. Aminu Ibrahim has condemned the action of the students saying they should calm down as the school management has taken drastical measures to address the issue.
Adding that “We have already set up a panel to look at exactly what caused the death of Muyideen Salawu and that other negligence of the officials of the Clinic would also be looked into.
