BREAKING NEWS: Massive protest in UNILAG over naming of varsity after Abiola – Premium Times


Students pour out of their classes and hostels, protesting the renaming of the university

Reports reaching us indicate that thousands of students of the University of Lagos are protesting the change of name of the school announced this morning by President Goodluck Jonathan.

The students are chanting anti-government slogans, saying the president’s decision is the worst he had ever taken. They vowed to resist the renaming of the institution.

The protesters are heading towards the school gate and are about pouring into the streets.

The school was renamed after the late businessman, politician and philanthropist, Moshood Abiola.

UPDATE 1: The students are now outside the university main gate creating a human blockade to all vehicles trying to access the school. They are chanting, “We no want.”

Vehicles are turning back as the students insist the acting vice chancellor must address them.

UPDATE 2: Officials are begging students to go back to campus saying, “We are with you.” Students shouted “NO”.

The university’s Director of Student Affairs, Professor Olukayode Amund, is begging the students and calling for caution.

He told our reporter, “We were all taken back. There was no due consultation and they said this is a democracy.”
