      Well……..if you don’t like it, you can always change schools. They’re offering a service if you don’t like their terms, leave.

      This is the dumbest statement ever! Just like saying if you don’t like what’s going on in Nigeria, travel out. You do realize most parents send their kids to federal universities in Nigeria because they are affordable, not like these schools are anything great? You clearly didn’t attend a government owned University in Nigeria and know nothing about the hardships these students face on a daily basis, so keep quiet and don’t give senseless comments on something you know nothing about.

      So they would wait for you to damage school properties before reacting, abi? It’s getting obvious university students these days don’t have a clue…

    Countries around the world are trying to simplify life, our country is doing the opposite making things as unnecessarily complicated as possible. Yet they wonder why parents choose to send their offspring to uni abroad?

    Did they even address the issue of the poor electricity?

    Wow no wonder so many Nigerians find it hard to question authority, if at University stage the institution denies them their right to a peaceful protest, and even punishes them for it. May God help us all.

      Again, the problem is, are you taking your protest to the right platform? The university authority you keep referring to is made up of civil servants like the parents of many of us whose sphere of control electricity and water is out of. They get government allocation to run the university, that is all: if electricity and water is poor nationwide they don’t have the magic to change the situation within the campus walls. It’s like going to Genevieve or Omotola’s house to protest the nationwide fuel scarcity. True, there is a case for better planning by the authorities and creative sourcing or generation of electricity in-house, but this is what the students should take to their table and aggressively follow up on, rather than these meaningless protests.

      The way you clueless people come on BN to write rubbish comments is really annoying. Since when did UNILAG depend on government allocation for survival? If any university lacks basic amenities, it shouldn’t be UNILAG! Imagine foundation program students paying over 400k, times that money by 1000 students(they are probably more). Post graduate nko? Those guys pay almost 200k each, times that by 500(probably more too), part time students pay close to 150k yearly, times that by 500(probably more), DLI nko? Let’s not even go there! UNILAG generates a lot of money by itself and has never depended on the allocation from the government, and the students know this. So yes, they were right by protesting to the school authorities.

    Dear Sylvia

    1. “Just like saying if you don’t like what’s going on in Nigeria, travel out”. You’re comparing a nation state to a school???? *Facepalm*

    2. “You do realize most parents send their kids to federal universities in Nigeria because they are affordable, not like these schools are anything great?”: You’re countering your point. “Universities” imply choice…….meaning these parents have a CHOICE, if you do not like the universities rules withdraw your child. Universities are not a right merely an ideal.

    3. “You clearly didn’t attend a government owned University in Nigeria and know nothing about the hardships these students face on a daily basis, “: What hardships; crappy toilets, unmotivated lecturers, bed-bug ridden beds, no working sound systems in the lecture halls???? I’m confused……..what exactly were you expecting compared to the amount you pay?? Private hostels outside school cost between N180,000-N750,000 per semester, the school one costs N35,000. Come on!!! you’re not a child, you get what you pay for. If I say now admission numbers should be reduced so quality can improve, people like you will still complain.

    4. “so keep quiet and don’t give senseless comments on something you know nothing about.”: *Sigh* At the end of the day, you’ll still sign the forms no? You’ll still make a conscious choice to return to UNILAG and you think my comment pointing out that service providers can set their terms of service is senseless??? Hmm………..

      You’re obviously a spoilt brat! Just because you’re privileged to have parents that can afford to pay N180000 for hostel doesn’t mean everyone has that same privilege. Universities imply ‘choice’, really? In Nigeria? People with University degrees can barely get suitable jobs, you think those without degrees will fare better? Or you’d rather have them join robbery gangs and indulge in internet scams? You’d suggest they reduce the admission numbers so that what will happen to the many that are rejected? Are you unaware that the nation itself is overpopulated and there aren’t enough higher institutions? How dare you use your privileged fingers to type such nonsense? From my comment you deduced I’m a student of UNILAG? For your information, I graduated from UNIBEN YEARS AGO, these UNILAG kids are calm, that’s all I can say.
      N.B: There’s no such thing as a nation state, with all the money your parents have spent on your education, one would think you’d know that.

      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation_state ??????

      1. You’re obviously a spoilt brat!……..You and your assertions without proof.

      2. Just because you’re privileged to have parents that can afford to pay N180000 for hostel doesn’t mean everyone has that same privilege: Problems with comprehension?? I stated a fact, not what I pay……………What sort of world do you leave in where you expect quality housing for N35,000 yearly??

      3. Universities imply ‘choice’, really? In Nigeria? People with University degrees can barely get suitable jobs, : Your logic is faulty………….I state that Nigeria has a lot of universities, by definition, having a lot of something implies choice.

      4. “you think those without degrees will fare better?”: Yes………….because at the end of the day, most of those with those degrees end up doing jobs not related to their degree. You seem to think university is a right or a necessity for success when it clearly is not. Examples: 32% and 31% of American men and women are university graduates.

      5 “Or you’d rather have them join robbery gangs and indulge in internet scams?”: Absurd thinking. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slippery_slope

      6. You’d suggest they reduce the admission numbers so that what will happen to the many that are rejected?: Read university education is not right…………if you do not see a problem in wasting resources churning out low quality graduates, you’re a lost cause. Those rejected by the university will make their way to other universities or polytechnics or colleges of education or learn a trade or join the military or police e.t.c

      7. “Are you unaware that the nation itself is overpopulated”: *Sigh* Hmm……University didn’t teach you about the need for proof, you’re proving my point you know. Anyways top countries with the highest population densities: Nigeria is a whooping 69th…..Malthus is dead you know, cities, high-rise apartments, efficient public transport….solutions to your fears of overpopulation.

      8. “there aren’t enough higher institutions?”: No country in the world has enough higher institutions, which is why with SCARCE resources…universities as the provider of the service dictate their terms. Do I need to capitalise all of it??

      9. “How dare you use your privileged fingers to type such nonsense? “: ??????The irony.

      10. “From my comment you deduced I’m a student of UNILAG? : Just like you deduced “You clearly didn’t attend a government owned University in Nigeria”……Human beings make mistakes; are you willing to learn from yours?

      11. “For your information, I graduated from UNIBEN YEARS AGO”: Your English is excellent. Truly I do not jest; my disagreement with every single word you’ve written won’t take that away.

      12. ” these UNILAG kids are calm, that’s all I can say.”: Ahh yes, the lack of calmness from UNIBEN students has clearly made UNIBEN the best university in the world……….People I hear lob off their limbs to get in. Truly everybody should seek to emulate UNIBEN. Right?

      13. FYI There is such a thing as a nation state, I led with that because it was too funny.

      a. statista.com/statistics/184272/educational-attainment-of-college-diploma-or-higher-by-gender/

      b. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_and_territories_by_population_density

      P.S calm down, I’m right and deep down you know it. These students will have to compete in a global world, the game has changed. if the tough decisions aren’t made now.. The country will suffer.

      Babe, abeg ignore her…she is very ignorant.It is not even about her being privileged…she just lacks acumen FINISH
      I attended UNIBEN and walahi they dare not try what they are trying with unilag students, you close down a school then rush the academic calendar up just to punish the students and then fix exam…JOKER.

      The university system forgets thats without students there is no need for a university…But we are too divided to get the right reaction and hold them responsible for the welfare.
      I paid 7700 naira school fees and i got what is due to me.
      Firstly, why tell students not to bring mattress to school and give them bed-bug ridden mattresses…would the students complain if they brought their own foams ?
      no light in the hostel and staff quarters is well lit…lol…JOKER
      UNIBEN…Gen comes by 7pm..supplies hostels first then HSQ and then SSQ…..all on top 77OO naira tuition ..teacher do not even tell me nonsense
      Ignorant pple thinking you deserve a service because of what you pay…aunty Elsandri abi wats ur name sef…are you aware public schools in USA and co are free and are more standardized than some private school…abi wat is the essence of tax and other benefits we are to enjoy from the govt by being its citizens?????
      dont even vex me sef
      And do NOT even come at me with your foolish analysis…i am too sure am WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY above what ever you want to spew

    I’m stressed out and pissed off on their behalf. So sorry the kids have to go through so much just to go to school. May the next generation never have to deal with such. May they not even be able to imagine how hard life once was. Amen.

    @Vanessa, post graduate students pay 200k, really? You are clearly the ignorant one. I am a postgraduate student and I know we pay way less than that.
    This is the problem in our country, we are willing to adopt lazy approaches like protests and strikes rather than ask the tough questions, put ourselves under pressure to get the right solutions, and then put pressure on our leaders to implement the right solutions. Keep on counting the student school fees in UNILAG ‘s throat if you are silly enough to think all that money is accessible for management use.

      What pains me the most is that Nigerians can’t seem to open their eyes and see the future. Robots(no seriously; SERIOUS!!) are already taking over most of the low skill jobs meaning that although cars, electronic products e.t.c will keep getting cheaper, millions of jobs will be wiped out. Countries that survive will the ones with world-class tech and services sectors that can compete globally.

      Somehow Nigerians refuse to see that the continued dumbing down of our universities is a ticking time-bomb.

      In a world where MNCs can consult with their lawyers via tele-conferencing, fly them into the country in hours, where currency can move at the touch of a button. Nigerians still think the current jobs we’re trained for will be relevant then? Our academic research output is poor, our facilities crowded. I’m tired……

    Let face it, the school will only give you what it has to give.
    you cant be living in Nigeria and expect the UK snow falls.

    Read your books and make Nigeria better. Hallas!
