Adeyeye Olorunfemi, a University of Lagos (UNILAG) student who was rusticated on allegation of making defamatory post about the University’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Rahman Bello on Facebook, has come out to protest against the decision by the panel that rusticated him.
Olorunfemi had said in the post:
Vice Chancellor sir! You remain a first class Chemical engineering graduate from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife. What has happened to the Great Ife in you!. Our power generation is deteriorating and you are alive. The Nation’s investment of knowledge on you to make you a scholar is a WASTE. Your first class honours degree is the true definition of a FIASCO.
“The irresponsibility, insensitivity and irresponsiveness to the welfare of the students of the VC and his misMANAGEMENT have shown that they are all misfits when it comes to parenthood,” he added.
Olorunfemi and other students had protested against the University management for proper welfare of students. This led to the school being shut down by the management.
Management of the ivory tower later re-opened the school, saying that students must sign undertaking, and their guardians, indemnity forms before they can be readmitted. Read it here.
Watch Olorunfemi’s video:
Olorunfemi was rusticated alongside other leaders of the University of Lagos Student Union (ULSU).
The other students also accused the University management of dubious practices against students’ welfare interest.
While protesting their rustication, they alleged that the Management paid sum of N250,000 to a National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Executive member, Sanusi Suleiman, also known as “Bakindo” to facilitate sabotage of student protests against the alleged Management’s actions.
