 Over 7,000 prospective students, who are seeking admission into the Osun State-owned Tertiary Institutions under the aegis of the Concern Applicants (CA) have called on the management of the various institutions in the state to refund their money.

Admission into the state owned tertiary institutions has been halted because of the education reform of the state, which has been generating crisis.

The potential applicants also urged the state government to intervene in the matter and ensure that their money used for the admission processes was refund, since the schools have stopped admission.

In an open letter made available to CityMirrorNews on Wednesday in Osogbo, the aggrieved admission seekers threatened to drag the managements of the tertiary institutions to court should they fail to refund their money.

The affected tertiary institutions are: Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, Osun state College of Technology, Esa-Oke, Osun state College of Education, Ila and Osun state College of Education, Ilesa.

Thousands of applicants had obtained admission forms and engaged in other school admission stipulated processes in the four tertiary institutions before their management suddenly announced the cancellation of admission into the institutions admission for year 2015/2016.

One of the signatories of the letter, Comrade Biola Oyeniyi who claimed to be representing other concerned applicants, lamented that the state government and the management of the tertiary institutions have jeopardized their education programmes because of the stoppage of the admission.

Oyeniyi who condemned in its entirety the decision of the state government and the school authorities to stop admission after collecting money, maintained that the applicants would pursue the matter to a logical conclusion.

He called on National Board for Technical Education and the Governing Council of those institutions to prevail on Governor Rauf Aregbesola to address the issue on time.
