The Students’ Union Government of the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, Ogun State, has refuted allegations of giving awards to a group of cultists.

Our correspondent gathered that there has been controversy over an award plaque reportedly presented to the Neo-Black Movement (aka Black axe) by the students’ union.

The SUG President, Ogunsan Joshua, in a statement made available to our correspondent on Thursday distanced the union from the award and “anything that has to do with it.”

Joshua insisted that the union has a zero tolerance for cultism and as such it would not have given an award to any group associated with cultism.

The statement reads “Our attention has been drawn to an award, which was purportedly given to a particular group named Neo-Black Movement of Africa (Worldwide). As students’ union body, we dissociate from the award or anything whatsoever that has to do with it.

“We regret the inconveniences the publication of the award might have caused any individual, group of people or association particularly our esteemed institution, the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro.

“At this juncture, we want to re-emphasize the zero tolerance for cultism in our institution and that is what we as a students’ union body stands for.”
