UNILAG Student Union Leaders Protest Against their Rustication by School’s Management | WATCH



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.

    You were sent to school to pass and not to be against the school.

      WTF are you talking about? Did you even take the time to watch the video and comprehend what the young man said? Your likes are the reason why Nigeria is a total mess because you either don’t know what your fundamental rights are you choose to be ignorant based on your comment..

      I didn’t bother to watch the video. Why?….they were sent to school to read not protest. The reality is that their lives have just been put on hold by this unfortunate situation. And who really suffers other than their parents and themselves.
      Again, let’s all choose the battle we fight in carefully and more importantly choose the weapons we fight with even more carefully. Their battle may have been justified but not the weapon.(especially as it concerns Unilag)
      This is my opinion as a parent and as a Unilag alumni.

      Uncle gwe gwe is spewing ignorance as usual
      In summary Femi said ,
      “If exposing a crime in any society is taken as a crime, then it is safe to say that you’re being ruled by criminals.” ????????
      These are the kind of leaders that are needed in Nigeria, people who are not afraid to stand up to he bullies and stand up for what they believe in while damning the consequences.
      It takes a lot of guts.
      You’ll be great Femi!!!

    Olunrunfemi is a very smart fell and articulate. That man would excel in the western world. I wish I could afford to sponsor his education. Nigeria, a waste of a country

    Sorry couldn’t get past the .35 mark. If disrupting lectures for students who actually want to take it and blocking traffic no longer qualifies as “social misconduct” I have no idea what does.

    What they’re doing now is how to protest, what they did last, hooliganism.

    I believe the children are the future and the youth are the hope.
    Look, the universities do not produce research, their scholarship (as far as I can see) supports no one but itself (i.e. neither government, the masses, nor the private sector care about what the universities are thinking, writing, or producing.) The only thing the universities usefully produce is “graduates”. The whole point then must be serving the students and nurturing them to be excellent graduates.
    What’s my point? The world should revolve around the graduates and not around their teachers/administrators. Ideally the admin should apologize and take back their wrongdoing against the students, but that will never happen, stubbornness, I bigger pass you-ism will never allow. The next best thing, someone suggested online, is the students should be admitted at another university. Maybe in Nigeria, but if politics will not allow, maybe outside Nigeria.

    We all need to learn some humility, but we also need to learn that young people will not be taking crap anymore, it’s the young people’s lives that are at stake and throughout Africa there are Mugabes ruining their lives and it will not be acceptable anymore. Precursor to a revolution. Remember the Azikiwes and the Awolowos, the Soyinkas and the whoevers? They were young people who decided that their lives matter and did the work to get their respect.

    Well spoken and articulate Lad. Olorunfemi, keep up the fight and you ll go places. That was my alma mata and I understand some of the shenanigans that goes on there. I personally know guys who fought for a just cause, got rusticated and got back on their feet after a while. Don’t despair, it might be hard but you ll be eventually vindicated. Omoyele Sowore himself can attest.

    I am not disappointed. The decadence in the society starts from the institutions of learning across the Country.Sorting of lecturers,sexual harassment,intimidation from lecturers,Cultists and native doctors as lectures and the likes.First of,why are they rusticating students-was there a guideline to direct how protests should be led and they went against it?Why did 7 executives out of 16 that protested get the hammer?4 semester?Haba….UNILAG ALUMNI…this is the time to get involved,the students might have been wrong(not sure about that though,Bedbugs!!!ewwww) but leniency is what we plead for.These students obviously dont look like a brainless bunch-they are the future of the Country,the Country is already hard as it is…sending them home might be a recipe for disaster.UNILAG is the University of First choice,things should be done the right way.

      Good point: maybe Unilag Alumni can help. Is there a board , like a board of advisors or something?

    I am a post graduate student of the university of Lagos and the decadence is nothing to write home about. there is no light , we pay for materials that are not provided for, we are forced to pay for books that are not in our curriculum before our course form can be collected, lectures are no where to be found …..and the annoying part is no academic or non academic staff has answers to any question raised.
    This is the reason we find our dear country in the situation we are in….. there is no accountability and responsibility in the public sector.

    I totally agree with the young man,Lecturers only know how to lecture,they can’t apply their principle to save Nigeria.AsuuOou is on strike,the governor is in Mecca later everyone will be shouting half baked graduate.I have always said it,corruption is in the education sector,EFCC should pay them a visit.Lord have mercy on Nigeria
